Guess who is a Google Cloud customer – Apple!

Yes, you heard that right! Apple is indeed a Google Cloud customer. Many would recall that, back in 2016, there was a rumor going around that Apple uses the Google Cloud platform to power its cloud backup and storage service iCloud.

This juicy gossip then, however, was never confirmed by Apple. And like everything else, got shushed down the media attention horizon.

Prior to Google, Apple had relied upon Microsoft’s Azure

However, in Apple’s recent iOS Security Guide, a publicly available iOS security documentation published by the iPhone maker from time to time, the shift to Google was more or less confirmed.

“The encrypted chunks of the file are stored, without any user-identifying information, using third-party storage services, such as S3 and Google Cloud Platform.”

Here, S3 refers to Amazon Web Services, while the other one is pretty much right there.

Prior to Google, the tech giant had relied upon Microsoft’s Azure.

Microsoft has declined to offer any comment on this.

It is not yet clear when Apple started using Google’s cloud services.

Given the heady competition between these two giants in the smartphone area, this news has sparked quite some excitement.
