    As some of you may know that Apple is storing Chinese user data on a state owned telecom company that is located in China. I want to know how does Apple determines if a user is from China or another country. Do they do it by IP, phone number, iTunes account, phone's region, or something else? If they do it by the phone's region, does that mean if someone buy a phone from the US then their data wont be stored on a Chinese server? Thank You
