I see cloudd connecting to multiple Apple sites, which I know little about, but they are apple.com or icloud.com sites, which seems reasonable:
Today cloudd wanted permission to connect to us-east-1.amazonaws.com and Little Snitch put up a dialog box. Looking cloudd there were also these two:
Apple owns the domain icloud-content.com, so I am guessing these are OK.
The Amazon connection is less obvious.
Is there a way to know why cloudd is connecting to specific sites?
