Here’s an interesting piece of Apple news. Ok maybe it’s not as interesting as it’s informative. Apple decided to post information about “including a privacy policy in your apps“.

The blog entry has more or less the same content that we’ve earlier posted in “iOS 8 Starts Today, so Do New Privacy Requirements“. Nonetheless, it’s very interesting to see Apple being so vocal about the whole privacy topic lately:

To ensure that customers understand how their data will be used, you must provide a link in the Privacy Policy URL field in iTunes if a privacy policy is required by law in your country or if your app does any of the following:

  • Accesses user or device data
  • Offers an account registration process
  • Accesses a user’s existing account
  • Uses the HomeKit Framework or HealthKit Framework
  • Integrates Apple Pay
  • Includes keyboard extensions
  • Contains auto-renewable subscriptions or free subscriptions
  • Appears in the Kids Category

For more details, read the App Store Review Guidelines.

Time to address your privacy policy iOS developers. We’ll gladly be of assistance.
