Private Cloud Compute: A new frontier for AI privacy in the cloud


Apple introduces Private Cloud Compute (PCC), a new cloud intelligence system offering unparalleled privacy for AI processing in the cloud. PCC ensures that users' data sent to the cloud remains private and inaccessible to anyone other than the user, not even to Apple. Built with custom Apple silicon and a hardened OS, PCC integrates iOS security technologies like Secure Enclave and Secure Boot to protect user data during cloud processing.

  • PCC's custom server hardware brings Apple silicon security to data centers.
  • Private Cloud Compute encrypts user requests end-to-end.
  • PCC operates statelessly, not retaining data after processing.
  • Apple will make PCC production software images public for research.
  • PCC's enforceable guarantees protect data even from Apple staff.
