Apple highlights its privacy practices

According to Apple,  Apple’s health app and HealthKit have been designed keeping privacy in mind. There is also a post in Apple’s official website highlighting its privacy practice. Under the health section, the company said that iPhone and Apple Watch users with the latest OS version and 2FA enabled can back up their data in a way that even Apple can’t read it. When iPhone is locked with a passcode or Face ID, health and fitness data in the Health app is encrypted. However, your Medical ID is not encrypted.
