Apple's iCloud for Windows 10 Hits Microsoft Store

iCloud for Windows offers less terrible PC file access

Apart from the functionality of the iCloud Drive, the rest of the iCloud features largely remain the same for Windows users with the latest release.

Thanks to some undisclosed development and partnership presumably, Windows 10 and former Mac users with iPhones and iPads can now head over to the Microsoft Store to grab the new iCloud app.

An Engineering general manager for Microsoft, Giorgio Sardo, said that the iCloud Drive on Windows 10 PCs and the iCloud for Windows app, the users would be able to access their iCloud Drive files from the file explorer. This time, you can sync bookmarks stored in the iCloud with three different browsers, namely Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. This means that Windows 10 Home and Pro users aren't the only ones who can install it, as a Store version also makes it possible for the app to run on Windows 10 in S Mode (which is restricted to Microsoft Store apps). In fact, Apple and Microsoft collaborated to use the Windows APIs for cloud storage sync, so it's basically a drop-in replacement for OneDrive. The app is listed as a free download on the Microsoft Store and can be installed by all Windows users.

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. That includes quickly sharing files from an iOS device to your PC via iCloud. Users can also share any file directly from Windows File Explorer, and presumably folder sharing will be coming as well once macOS Catalina and iOS 13 arrive later this year. Users can also invite others to add comments or their own photos and videos.

The new version looks great and works amazingly.
