In a file updated last month on Apple’s official website, the tech giant confirmed that it has been using Google Cloud for its iCloud services. This had been speculated by several media outlets since the summer of 2016.

Until last month Apple’s iOS Security Guide stated that it used Amazon Web services and Microsoft’s Azure. In the latest update, they have confirmed that Apple has been using Google Cloud services.

The new edition describes its iCloud service: “The encrypted chunks of the file are stored, without any user-identifying information, using third-party storage services, such as [Amazon] S3 and Google Cloud Platform.”

The report, however, does not include further details such as what kinds of files outside of photos and videos are being stored in the Google Cloud.

Apart from Google, Apple also uses the cloud systems of PayPal, Snap, and Spotify.
