Apple launches new iCloud app for Windows 10, available on the Microsoft Store

Apple has been a customer of the iCloud for Windows, so that users of the Apple cloud service can access their files, photos and other elements also on PCs. Today, however, the Cupertino giant has renewed the utility with a series of improvements – under the hood, mainly – that will make the experience of using the service on Windows closer to what we have on Apple apps.

iCloud for Windows

For starters, the new iCloud for Windows is based on the same technology that Microsoft uses to sync files from OneDrive and enable the on-demand file tool – that is, the foundation here is native and promises to bring fewer connection errors, in addition to faster speed and greater reliability when syncing your iCloud files to your PC.

In addition, from now on the app will be offered on Microsoft Store, which means that users of Windows 10 S (the version of the system that runs only store apps) will be able to enjoy the benefits of iCloud also on their computers.

In addition, iCloud for Windows remains the same as ever: you can access your iCloud Drive files in a special File Explorer folder without taking up computer space, choosing which files to keep locally, viewing photos, email, contacts, calendars and tasks, sync Safari favorites with Edge and share / collaborate on files directly from your PC.

The utility can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft Store.
