Apple's iCloud Now Available For Windows 10 Users at Microsoft Store

iCloud for Windows offers less terrible PC file access

Microsoft and Apple today revealed the availability of a new iCloud for Windows 10 users.

iCloud for Windows specifically offers the ability to access photos and videos from iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Photo Stream on a Windows PC, along with integration for iCloud mail, calendars, contacts, and reminders (as tasks) with Microsoft Outlook.

It follows on the heels of iTunes for Windows appearing in the Microsoft Store this spring. This time, you can sync bookmarks stored in the iCloud with three different browsers, namely Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome.

Apple and Microsoft teamed as much as creating an iCloud Drive expertise that may hopefully resolve some compatibility points.

The iCloud app will be powered by the same technology used in Microsoft's OneDrive's On-Demand feature.

After installing iCloud for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store, you are prompted to enter your iCloud credentials.

"With iCloud Photos, any new photos and videos that you take on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch automatically download to your PC, and upload photos and videos from your PC so that you can access them from your other devices too".

Safely store all your files in iCloud Drive and access them from your iOS device, Mac, and on iCloud.com. The app also lets you share any file right from File Explorer and easily collaborate with others.

How Do I Get It?

While iCloud has always been available for Windows users, the service was never fully integrated into the Windows environment.

The new version claims to be a significant improvement, with more robust features and more reliable syncing-the latter of those has been a common complaint about users of Apple's previous version.
