Beijing : Tech giant Apple Inc. will, on February 28, put into operation its first data centre in China, the company said on Wednesday. The move is aimed at increasing transparency and making further inroads into China. From March, photos, documents and other personal information uploaded to iCloud accounts by Apple customers in China will be stored at a data centre located in southwest China’s Guizhou Province, the Xinhua news agency reported. The iPhone maker will start informing its Chinese iCloud users from Wednesday, with data transferred and uploaded to the new data base automatically. The move also aims to offer Chinese customers a safer and more fluent iCloud experience, the company was quoted as saying. Apple announced the construction of the Guizhou facility  last July, with an investment of USD 1 billion.
