Apple's iCloud for Windows App Gets a New Version in Microsoft Store

iCloud for Windows offers less terrible PC file access

Apple's New Windows 10 iCloud App Now Available in MS Store

"You can now access your iCloud account across Windows 10 PC and Apple devices", a Microsoft representative told me.

Apple's iCloud is a full-featured service for storing files and photos, syncing contacts, and other things, as long as you're working solo and not looking to collaborate.

This time, Apple hasn't even bothered to announce the new iCloud for Windows app, leaving Microsoft to herald its arrival in the Microsoft Store with a new iCloud Drive feature.

It follows on the heels of iTunes for Windows appearing in the Microsoft Store this spring.

Once configured, you can access various features by clicking on the Taskbar icon. Fortunately, the app leverages the File System mostly so its Apple-like design is hidden from users for the most part.

You can also view and edit the files directly on your Windows 10 device without saving them to the local drive.

You can also enable shared albums, a feature that lets you share photos with the people you choose and then enable them to add other pictures, videos, and comments.

Microsoft's says there are now 825 million active Windows 10 devices.

Apple fans who also use Windows can download an updated version of iCloud from the Microsoft Store today.

When launched, users will be asked what type of content they would like to integrate with Windows 10. This will bring up a list of integrated features that can you use as shown below.

Apple did release an updated support page titled 'What is iCloud for Windows?', showing an iPad and iPhone next to a Windows PC with the iCloud app open above File Explorer in the background.
