More importantly, the app could help users determine if their iPhone device had been jailbroken, accessed without their consent, or infected with malware and other potentially harmful mobile software.
Late last year, Apple had quietly inked a deal with rival Google in order to use Google Cloud Platform. Since that deal was struck, it appears that the iPhone maker is minimizing its reliance on Amazon Web Services (AWS), as reported by CRN. Every year, Apple spends approximately a billion dollars on AWS in powering its iCloud, iTunes, and other cloud related services. But the last few months has seen the company reducing its spending on Amazon’s platform, although it seems that Apple has not fully ditched AWS yet, and as of this writing, still remains a customer.

Last month in May, Apple quietly introduced a few changes to how it highlights and sorts mobile apps in the iTunes App Store, particularly in the games section. Some of these changes may be significant to developers of games because the way their creations are displayed on the App Store may be affected.
Before, game developers had depended on featured app lists that were generated by way of algorithms in order to show the latest or trending apps. But it appears that quite a number of these app lists are nowhere to be seen. As a matter of fact, lists like New, What's Hot, and All iPhone (Free & Paid) have disappeared. instead, lists that have been editorially curated have now taken their place.
