The exposure is fresh proof that Google’s cloud has been accumulating up usage as it looks to make up with Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud support business.

Some communications outlets reported on Google’s iCloud win in 2016, but Apple nevermore provided confirmation.

Apple periodically issues new variants of a PDF called the iOS Security Guide. For times the document included language indicating that iCloud services were relying on remote data storage arrangements from Amazon Web Services, as well as Microsoft’s Azure.

But in the latest version, the Microsoft Azure mention is gone, and in its position is Google Cloud Platform. Before the January update, Apple most freshly updated the iOS Security Guide in March.

The latest update doesn’t register whether Apple is using any Google cloud settings other than core storage of “objects” like photos and videos. The report also doesn’t make it clear when Apple started storing data in Google’s cloud. Microsoft refused to comment. Apple didn’t reply to a request for comment.

Earlier this month Google said its common cloud and its G Suite line of cloud-based productivity apps provide $1 billion in revenue per quarter. In the fourth quarter, market leader Amazon Web Services brought in $5.11 billion in revenue.
