Both the versions of iCloud offer the same set of functionalities.

Apple has had an iCloud app for Windows 10 for a while now, but the link to download it was always buried deep in Apple's support pages.

At the most basic, this means you can access core iCloud elements such as your photos, videos, mail, and calendar data though the app. This marks the second major Apple launch in the Microsoft Store after the April 2018 launch of iTunes.

The iCloud app for Windows is available for download for free in the Microsoft Store right now. Bookmarks also sync from iOS Safari to Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Google Chrome. Users can now merely entry images, movies, mail, calendars, files and different info from their iCloud accounts from their PC or smartphone.


In a blog post by Microsoft, the company reveals that the Windows iCloud Drive is the same as what they use for their OneDrive Files cloud service.

After installing iCloud for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store, you are prompted to enter your iCloud credentials. The app also lets you share any file right from File Explorer and easily collaborate with others. The new iCloud for Windows app also supports collaboration, so you can make edits to a file and they'll be synced across all of your devices.

How Do I Get It?

"We're excited to announce that starting today, iCloud for Windows is now available to download as an app in the Microsoft Store worldwide", said Giorgio Sardo, engineering general manager for the Microsoft 365 developer ecosystem. The new version claims to be a major improvement, with more robust features and more reliable syncing-the latter of those has been a common complaint for users of Apple's previous version.
