Hands-On with Apple's New iCloud App for Windows 10

iCloud for Windows offers less terrible PC file access

Similarly, Apple offers iCloud for Windows to provide better interoperation between Windows and iPhone/iPad devices, and now in an ironic twist, Microsoft has announced a major update to the iCloud for Windows app that will also include bringing it to the Microsoft Store for maximum availability to Windows 10 users. It's powered by the same technology behind OneDrive's Files On-Demand feature.

With the app, users can access photos, videos, mail, calendar, files, and other information from their iCloud account on the go, as well as on their Windows 10 PC.

The new iCloud app allows you to access your iCloud Drive files right from File Explorer and you don't have to save the files.

Apple's iCloud is a fully-featured service for storing files and images, syncing contacts, and different issues, so long as you are working solo and never trying to collaborate.


All Microsoft users can take advantage of the new iCloud feature, although they must have an existing iCloud account set up on an Apple Device, whether that's a phone, iPad, or Mac. Instead, a placeholder is downloaded and files are only completely downloaded when a folder is marked for sync. If you want to upload any files, you have to simply drag and drop them to iCloud Drive without needing to open iCloud itself. The new iCloud application can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. Despite being decreasing the Mac version of iTunes, Windows version is not going anywhere.

After installing iCloud for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store, you are prompted to enter your iCloud credentials.

The Window users who previously jumped on to Apple devices because of some limitation of Windows will agree: the previous iCloud for windows was not up to the mark.

Apple has arranged a support web page explaining what iCloud for Windows can do and what the necessities are for utilizing it.
