tech giant Apple clarifies only iCloud users in China will see data migration to a Chinese server

according to tech crunch news, Apple says that an email sent to users with Apple IDs with locations not set to China that their iCloud data was being moved to a Chinese company’s servers was done so accidentally.

Earlier this week, Apple notified users living in China that their data would be moved to a Chinese company’s servers in compliance with local laws. There was some
confusion, however, as a number of customers who currently live outside of China received the same message. TechCrunch discovered reports that a number of users with U.S.

In a separate email sent this evening, Apple has informed users that these emails were sent in error, reiterating that only users with their Apple ID country set to
China will have their iCloud data migrated to GCBD servers.

The email, obtained by TechCrunch, reads in part: “We are very sorry that you received this email. This email was intended only for customers whose Apple ID country
is China. A very small number of our customers whose Apple ID country is not China also received this email by mistake.”

The data migration and similar actions by other companies have riled privacy advocates who cite China’s strict internet censorship practices as reason for concern. Apple, however, claims its partnership with GCBD, which dates back to last year, grants customers strong data privacy and security protections. Importantly, the company promises no backdoors will be created by government agencies or other entities.
