Apple hands Chinese iCloud to Guizhou-Cloud Big Data Industry

Apple hands Chinese iCloud to Guizhou-Cloud Big Data Industry

The specific phrasing of the email is important, as it notes that users who have their location not set to China in their iCloud account are not now subject to the data migration process that Apple has announced.

Earlier this week, Apple announced that it was handing over operations of iCloud data services for customers in China to GCBD, who will manage the data in mainland China.

Apple announced previous year that it will migrate all user data from Chinese iCloud accounts to local servers run by Guizhou-Cloud Big Data Industry Co Ltd (GCBD), which is part of a state-backed infrastructure project overseen by local Communist Party officials. This email was intended only for customers whose Apple ID country is China.

"How could they possibly judge that I'm a Chinese citizen?"

Those terms note that both Apple and GCBD will have access to customer data: "You understand and agree that Apple and GCBD will have access to all data that you store on this service, including the right to share, exchange and disclose all user data, including Content, to and between each other under applicable law". However, Apple claims that its partnership with GCBD grants customers strong data privacy and security protection. Other Apple loyalists told Reuters that they feared that refusing the new data terms or attempting risky solutions could mean losing their accounts or data. "You don't need to take any further action and can keep using iCloud in China".

"My iCloud service is paid in US dollars and the billing address is in Portland, how can this data be in a Chinese server?" Apple sent details to affected users, but TechCrunch discovered reports that a number of users with U.S. Apple IDs had received notification that their data was also being moved.

The services of in China will be operated by a local partner in Guizhou province from February 28, where the data of all Apple customers in China will be stored, the company said Wednesday.
