Apple uses Google Cloud Service for data storage of the iCloud services, says an acknowledgment the company has updated last month on its website. Apple hasn’t yet released any details about what the specific iCloud data has been included in the storage on cloud server provided by Google.
G Suite line and public cloud of Google’s loud-based productivity applications produce $1 billion revenue per quarter, as the company reported earlier this month, while leading marketer Amazon Web Services earned $5.11 billion revenue in the fourth quarter.
iOS Security Guide is periodically being published by Apple that contains new versions of the PDF. Since years, the document has been notifying that iCloud services relied on the remote data storage systems provided by Microsoft’s Azure as well as Amazon Web Services.
However, during the 2015’s event held in Washington, the Apple CEO , Tim Cook said in a statement that, “We don’t think you should ever have to trade it for a service you think is free but actually comes at a very high cost. This is especially true now that we’re storing data about our health, our finances, and our homes on our devices… We believe the customer should be in control of their own information.”
Cook added that, “You might like these so-called free services, but we don’t think they’re worth having your email, your search history, and now even your family photos data mined and sold off for god-knows-what advertising purpose. And we think, someday, customers will see this for what it is.”
