In its determination to expand its online services like iCloud, Apple spent over $30 million on Amazon’s Cloud services in the first quarter (Q1) of 2019. The amount is 10 per cent higher than what it spent in Q1 2018.
Internationally, there are more than a billion recorded users of Apple devices every month. Given its considerable storage requirement, the company relies on major big cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google, CNBC reported on Monday.
If Apple’s AWS use stays at those levels for the rest of 2019, its annual spending would exceed $360 million, the report noted.
