Apple hands over operation of its Chinese iCloud servers. The iPhone maker is partnering with Guizhou-Cloud Big Data, owned by the provincial government, to comply with strict new rules for foreign tech companies. Apple says it will maintain control of users’ encryption keys, but privacy advocates are leery.
