    I have noticed alot of communications to the network which is Apples network. I do not use Icloud and the only applications that acces that network should be Itunes and The App store on my Yosemite 10.10.5 workstation.

    I have blocked the network and tried opening the App store and it changed from network to netwokr to access the Applstore through Akamai.

    What is access the Apple or 96.16 network. Keep in mind when I did this test I had Itunes and the App store applications closed.

    #2 is NOT Apple's network. The 10.x.x.x range is a private network range. 172.16.x.x and 192.168.x.x are the other private IPv4 network address ranges.

    Private networks are used by Cable and DSL modems to create DHCP address pools for devices that will be sharing an internet connection. They are also used by anti-malware software to create a proxy connection that will be used for content scanning.
