Lawsuit: Apple Is a Stealth Cloud Reseller

August 14, 2019

Subscribers to iCloud claim Apple misrepresents its service, hides that parts of its storage are on Amazon, Google, and Microsoft’s cloud

Are iCloud subscribers getting premium, exclusive service backed by the Apple brand? That’s the question at the heart of a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court of Northern California by two subscribers that claim Apple misrepresents and unfairly prices the cloud service when their data – or at least part of it – ends up in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure’s infrastructure. Essentially, the lawsuit alleges that Apple is a stealthy cloud reseller that improperly conceals the source of its branded services.
