These days, genomic labs use custom panels, seeking information only for SNPs related to the study and voluntarily ignoring the rest. Apple would definitely not want to store SNPs related to "proclivity to aggression", but they might be interested to know if you can metabolize lactose. It makes a lot of sense for them to store some carefully chosen parts of your DNA in an iPhone (the less sensitive parts). Apple planned to replace the wallet, why not also the medical bracelet?
