What is iCloud?
iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc. launched on October 12, 2011. As of January 2017, the service had 782 million users. The service provides its users with means to store data such as documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, macOS or Windows devices, to share and send data to other users, and to manage their Apple devices if lost or stolen.
What is Health Data?
Health data is information about your health that you input into your iPhone, such as fitness tracking data, diet information, and more. This data is stored on your iPhone and can be synced to iCloud so that it can be accessed from any of your devices. You can also choose to share this data with certain apps and service so that they can provide you with tailored recommendations.

Why Delete Health Data from iCloud?
There are a few reasons you might want to delete health data from iCloud:
-You no longer use the Health app and want to free up space in iCloud.
-You’ve switched to a new iPhone and don’t need the old data taking up space.
-You’re concerned about privacy and don’t want your health data stored in the cloud.
Deleting health data from iCloud is a fairly simple process, but it’s important to note that it will also delete any health data that is only stored in iCloud and not on your iPhone. This means that if you have any data that is only accessible through the Health app, such as menstruation tracking or reproductive health, it will be deleted along with everything else. If you want to keep this data, you’ll need to export it first.
How to Prevent Data Loss from iCloud?
There are a number of ways to back up your health data, including using iCloud. However, if you accidentally delete data from iCloud, it can be difficult to recover. Here are a few tips on how to prevent data loss from iCloud:
-Make sure to regularly back up your data. This way, if you do accidentally delete something, you will have a recent backup to restore from.
-Be careful when deleting files from iCloud. If you are not sure whether you need a file or not, it is best to err on the side of caution and keep it.
-Keep your device locked when not in use. This will prevent accidental deletion of files.
-If you have sensitive health data, consider encrypting it before storing it in iCloud. This will make it more difficult for someone to access your data if they were to gain access to your account.
How to Recover Deleted Data from iCloud?
When you delete data from iCloud, it is permanently removed from all of your devices that are connected to iCloud. If you accidentally delete something from iCloud, you may be able to recover it from a backup.
