When using HealthKit in an app you need to add the privacy descriptions to the Info.plist. 
For HealthKit those are:

The issue is that if your App only reads data from HealthKit it still requires to add both. But it’s only required by iTunes Connect. There is no error or warning while compiling or running the code, you just see it when uploading the build for distribution.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add HealthKit.framework to your App
2. Add only NSHealthShareUsageDescription description in Info.plist
3. Upload the build to iTunes Connect

Expected Results:
The upload succeeds as the App is NOT using write APIs

Actual Results:
The upload fails with the error 
ERROR ITMS-90683: "Missing Info.plist key. This app attempts to access privacy-sensitive data without a usage description. The app's Info.plist must contain an NSHealthUpdateUsageDescription key with a string value explaining to the user how the app uses this data."
