Health data not allowed on iCloud
Apple has updated its App Store Review Guidelines to define rules on how several new iOS 8 technologies can be used. With HealthKit, for example, developers are not only prevented from selling data to advertisers and brokers, but blocked from storing that information in iCloud. Apps using HomeKit are barred from collecting data for advertising or data mining, and must state in marketing that their primary purpose is home automation.
Inter-app extensions must comply with the App Extension Programming Guide, and in the case of keyboards, some more specific limitations. These include barriers against advertising, marketing, and in-app purchases.
Developers using TestFlight for beta testing can only apply it to apps meant for the public, and are not allowed to use those apps as compensation for testers. Apps must, moreover, be submitted for review whenever new functions or content are added.
The iOS 8 upgrade should debut on or shortly after Apple's iPhone press event on September 9.
