A primer on privacy as "contextual integrity"
A primer on privacy as "contextual integrity" and why privacy notices on mobile platforms (both Android and iOS) are insufficient for attaining informed consent.

If your doctor asked for permission to collect your medical history, you would probably say yes.
However, if that doctor asked to collect your medical history to give to marketers for advertising purposes, you would probably decline.

The difference is, in the first case, you're making assumptions about how the data will be used based on who is making the request.
Knowing just the type of data requested and the requester are insufficient to make an informed decision: people also consider the purpose and other constraints (e.g., will data be resold, stored securely, etc.), which are equally important factors.

iPhone's Health app data crucial to murder conviction in British court
In May, Mitesh subdued his wife with an insulin injection, then used a plastic bag to strangle her. To make it look like intruders were responsible he ransacked their home.

This plan fell apart, though, after police examined the iPhones. Mitesh's Health app recorded a burst of activity after Jessica died, including his running up and down stairs, which police linked to efforts to stage a burglary. Jessica's health app recorded her laying still after her death — except for a sudden movement of 14 paces, in reality Mitesh taking the iPhone and dropping it outside to make it look like a burglar left it behind.

The case isn't the first time Apple's Health app has been used in a murder trial. In January this year it served as evidence in the rape and murder of a woman in Freiburg, Germany — at a point when the suspect was thought to have dragged the woman's body down to a river embankment and climbed back up, Health logged him as climbing stairs.

The app's data is saved locally on-device, and in encrypted backups in iTunes and iCloud. It's not immediately clear if police had to hack into the Patels' iPhones as was done in the Freiburg case.
