When Apple customers in the US sign up for iCloud services, they agree to a contract that states, ”When iCloud is enabled, your content will be automatically sent to and stored by Apple.” The contract doesn’t mention that, in fact, Apple sometimes stores iCloud data on third-party storage services provided by the likes of Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Platform — as stated in the iOS security guide.

This week, a pair of Apple customers filed a class action complaint against the tech giant for failing to disclose its iCloud storage practices. The complaint charges Apple is guilty of breach of contract, false advertising and violating California’s Unfair Competition Law.
