Apple's iCloud app joins the Microsoft Store

iCloud for Windows offers less terrible PC file access

Apple's New Windows 10 iCloud App Now Available in MS Store

Apple has released another app for the Windows Store after its now defunct iTunes app - its rumoured Store version of iCloud for Windows. iCloud works just as well as Microsoft's own OneDrive.

When launched, users will be asked what type of content they would like to integrate with Windows 10.

The revamped iCloud for Windows app introduces a new iCloud Drive feature that makes it easier to share files between iOS devices and Windows 10 PCs. But it shouldn't be too surprising at this point; despite the storied history and rivalries of the 1980s and '90s (as well as competition in areas like, yes, cloud services), Microsoft and Apple have largely played together nicely in recent years.

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.

Once configured, you can access various features by clicking on the Taskbar icon. This will bring up a list of integrated features that can you use as shown below.

"If you use iCloud for Windows 10, you can use iCloud Drive to initiate shared files or to optimize files".

Users can also choose files and folders they want to keep on a PC as well as store files in iCloud Drive and then access them from an iOS device, a Mac and on the iCloud website.
