Along with iOS 15, Apple introduced the iCloud + service, which adds new features to its paid “iCloud” plans. One of these features is iCloud Private Relay, which is designed to encrypt all traffic leaving your device so that no one can intercept or read it.
Apple did not mention the country’s limitations on the feature when it announced it, but Apple said so Reuters that the private broadcast will not start in China, Belarus, Colombia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkmenistan, Uganda and the Philippines,
According to Apple, regulatory reasons prevent the Private Relay function from launching in these countries.
Private Relay sends web traffic to a server supported by Apple to remove the IP address. After the IP information is removed, Apple sends the traffic to a second server maintained by a third party that assigns a temporary IP address and then sends the traffic to its destination, a process that prevents your IP address, location, and browsing activity from being used. to create an account for you.
The inclusion of an outside party in the relay system is a deliberate move that Apple says was designed to prevent anyone, including Apple, from knowing the identity of the user and the website the user is visiting.
ICloud Private Relay comes with each paid планiCloud storage plan, and Apple hasn’t changed pricing, so upgraded iCloud storage levels start at $ 0.99. LoICloud + also includes a new Hide My Email feature that allows you to create unique, random email addresses that are forwarded to your personal mailbox, and allows iCloud email addresses to be customized with a custom domain name.
