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

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

Apple and Microsoft have teamed up to offer a brand new iCloud experience to the Windows 10 users. With the iCloud app on Windows, you can access your iCloud Drive right from the File Explorer. Since it's in the Microsoft Store, is it a UWP?

Apple has brought their new iCloud app to the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 devices.

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.

You can also view and edit the files directly on your Windows 10 device without saving them to the local drive. Furthermore, the app also lets you access iCloud Photos, mail, Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, and Safari Bookmarks on Windows PC.

iTunes was the first app released by Apple in the Store. The app is listed as a free download on the Microsoft Store and can be installed by all Windows users.

Once configured, you can access various features by clicking on the Taskbar icon.

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

The iCloud Drive is what I think is the most useful feature of them all. iCloud Drive works pretty much like OneDrive, and it creates a new location in File Explorer that lets you browse files stored in the cloud.

If you've ever used iCloud on Windows, the version in the Microsoft Store will look awfully familiar: It's clearly a Desktop Bridge translation of the stock desktop app. "You can also pin files or folders locally so they don't optimize back to iCloud, and access shared photo streams and improved iCloud Photo Library support", Apple notes.
