The information came from the Baddit official website where they updated their Privacy Policy Page last on the 8th of May. They added in the page “Beddit has been acquired by Apple. Your personal data will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Apple Privacy Policy”. But there is neither any  discussion about any financial figure nor any official announcement from both the sides.Beddit is known to develop both sleep tracking software and hardware to track down the sleeping data. Beddit already has an app for both iOS and Apple Watch which is compatible with Beddit 3 Sleep monitor.
