When I open some of my apps in iTunesConnect, I see that they are require privacy policy now (the app become edited, Save button is active, privacy policy field is highlighted): enter image description here I have this problem only for particular apps. It started after iOS 10.3 update. Did I missed changes in iTunes Connect?

  • Do you collect any user data in your app?

Sorry, I found answer by myself:

https://developer.apple.com/app-store/review/guidelines/#privacy

Apps that collect user or usage data must have a privacy policy and secure user consent for the collection. This includes—but isn’t limited to—apps that implement HealthKit or other health/medical technologies, HomeKit, Keyboard extensions, Apple Pay, Stickers and iMessage extensions, include a login, or access user data from the device (e.g. location, contacts, calendar, etc.).

My app is using HealthKit for workouts on Apple Watch (but not collect any data).

  • I should've been more specific, health kit actually does collect user data whether you're using it or not.

  • Scary! Some of the guidelines are optional! For example, when they use the word should they mean should - its optional. Facebook, for example, doesn’t follow some of the shoulds WRT (iii)Data minimization as applied to photo access... at least unless an extremely tortured definition of “core functionality” is used: Jan 19, 2020 at 23:00
