Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has updated its App Store Review Guidelines to account for medical research through the soon-to-be-released Apple Watch. The update also brings new guidelines that bans media ripping apps from services like YouTube, Vimeo and SoundCloud.

One of the most game-changing announcements made by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) during its Monday event for the Apple Watch and its new computers was ResearchKit. With the new platform coupled with the sensors of the Apple Watch, researchers could tap into a number of participants for studies that was usually unheard of before.
