Apple Inc. announced Wednesday that it will hand over the operations of its iCloud data services for Chinese mainland users to a Guizhou-based company to comply China’s cloud-computing rules, starting next month.

The U.S. tech giant said as of Feb. 28 all iCloud data services for users with Chinese mainland accounts will be managed by Guizhou-Cloud Big Data (GCBD) and all of their data will be stored domestically in China.
