Apple recently started storing some of its iCloud and services data on Google’s cloud platform, Re/code and CRN have reported.

Re/code said that much of iCloud is hosted with Amazon Web Services (AWS), and some with Microsoft’s Azure platform.

According to the CRN report, Apple has added Google Cloud as a provider to reduce its reliance on AWS.

Re/code also reported that while Apple is adding another cloud provider to the mix, it is also working on breaking its dependence on rivals.

Morgan Stanley stated that Apple will open three data centres soon, after spending an estimated $1 billion on AWS in 2015.
