Apple’s iCloud for Windows Is Now Available on the Microsoft Store


While Apple has never been in a hurry to release Store versions of its apps, the company recently shipped its second Windows 10 application, as it chose to port iCloud to the Microsoft Store as well.

In a win for both tech giants, Apple has launched an "all-new" iCloud app for Windows that's available in the Microsoft Store.

Additionally, the app also displays the amount of iCloud storage that you can use, as well as how much you can still store in the cloud.

With the iCloud for Windows app and iCloud Drive on Windows 10 computers, users would be able to access their iCloud Drive files from the "File Explorer" itself, without having to use up space on the PC.

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

Apple fixes iCloud for Windows, Microsoft lifts update block Microsoft unblocks the Windows 10 October 2018 Update for one group, but several other blocks remain in place.

Once configured, you can access various features by clicking on the Taskbar icon. This brings an improved iCloud Drive experience for Windows 10 users.

"Apple and Microsoft are making it easy for customers to access and enjoy the benefits of their iCloud account across their Windows 10 PC and Apple devices", wrote Giorgio Sardo, engineering general manager for the Microsoft 365 Developer Ecosystem, in an official blog post.

iTunes was the first app released by Apple in the Store.

The iCloud app functions just like the OneDrive in the File Explorer and appear to support OneDrive's Files On-Demand feature.

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