Apple Says Some iCloud Users Received China Data Migration Notice in Error

Apple Says Some iCloud Users Received China Data Migration Notice in Error Apple Says Some iCloud Users Received China Data Migration Notice in Error

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.

On Friday, Apple clarified the situation saying that only users who live in China, or users who set their Apple ID country to China, will have their iCloud data migrated.

Apple verified the contents of the email but didn't offer further comment.

Apple started informing its Chinese iCloud users from Wednesday, with data transferred and uploaded to the new database automatically. He declined to share his full name in case his secondary account is identified and closed. 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.

On Wednesday, Apple told Chinese Apple ID holders that it will pass control of its iCloud services to GCBD in late February.

Chinese authorities maintain that the bans on foreign content - which include popular USA services by Facebook Inc, Alphabet Inc and Twitter Inc - are created to maintain social stability and eliminate threats to China's sovereignty. TechCrunch later discovered a number of U.S. iCloud users received the email meant for Chinese customers.

Apple said past year that it has strong data privacy protections in place for its Chinese data operations, and that no backdoors will be created in any of its systems.

As we said at the time, we're committed to continuously improving the user experience, and our partnership with GCBD will allow us to improve the speed and reliability of our iCloud services products while also complying with newly passed regulations that cloud services be operated by Chinese companies.

In a move to increase transparency and make inroads into China, the first data centre of the Cupertino-based tech giant Apple in China will be put into operation on February 28.

As reported by TechCrunch, a number of Apple customers with US and other country Apple IDs also received notification via email that their iCloud data would be handed off to GCBD.

Cupertino announced the billion-dollar joint data centre last July.
