Does someone know the ports/services that mac and  android devices use to download updates?

This is because in our Sophos Firewall we can see an "unclassified" traffic that sometimes consumes a considerable amount of  bandwidth. We have certain number of mac and android devices and we want to be sure that traffic has to do with the android and mac devices system/software updates.

Nice find on the Mac ports, Predrag. I'm bookmarking that one myself.
