Apple’s Windows Apps, Including iCloud, Have Been Updated
If you’re someone who lives and plays in the Apple ecosystem but also happens to use a Windows PC, you’re going to have some new apps to use after the company updated a number of apps including iCloud.
9to5Mac notes that the iCloud for Windows app has a new look which includes a new onboarding process including a progress indicator for syncing content.
Apple has also introduced a new onboarding process while including a progress indicator for syncing content with iCloud. Other key changes include improved sync performance with Microsoft Photos, physical security key support for Apple ID, and perhaps most importantly, fewer sign-in prompts.
The Apple Music and Apple TV apps have also been taken out of preview status as Apple continues to move away from the iTunes app, but that app will remain on Windows for now.
That’s where podcasts and audiobooks still live, while the Apple Devices app is what iPhone and iPad owners will use to back up and restore their devices.
Apple’s move away from iTunes could well be completed in the future however, but there’s no indication of when that might be or what Apple will do with the features that it continues to offer on Windows.
Those who are using these apps already can download the updated versions now, while there’s never been a better time to install them if you’re new to the Apple apps on Windows.
