In February, Apple caused an uproar when it announced it would be moving Chinese users’ iCloud accounts — and their encryption keys — to a China-based server company Guizhou-Cloud Big Data. Human rights advocates warned this move would be dangerous, especially so for Chinese dissidents. Apple’s response was that it simply had no choice but to comply if it wanted to continue providing its iCloud service to Chinese customers.
