Apple and Microsoft collaborate on new iCloud for Windows app

Apple and Microsoft have been cooperating on another iCloud application for Windows 10. While iCloud has dependably been accessible on Windows, this new application is accessible in the Microsoft Store and incorporates a sync include that depends on a similar tech behind OneDrive’s Files On-Demand highlight. This implies you would now be able to get to iCloud records on a Windows 10 PC without them being completely synchronized to a PC, hence sparing disk space.

A placeholder of the record itself will be downloaded, and when file is fully accessed or a folder is marked for sync it will download the whole substance. iCloud will likewise be coordinated into File Explorer inside Windows 10, with discrete envelopes for applications like Keynote, Numbers, and Pages. You’ll have the option to access archives put away on iCloud Drive, pictures from iCloud Photos, Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, and Safari bookmarks.

It’s surprising and encouraging to see both Microsoft and Apple work closely together on a Windows app, especially as Apple has used Microsoft’s latest Windows APIs for cloud storage sync. This could signal hope that Apple’s TV and Music services may eventually appear on Windows in the future. The new iCloud app for Windows is available immediately in the Microsoft Store.
