Users can now seamlessly access photos, files, passwords, and other vital information from their Apple devices on their Windows PC through the iCloud for Windows app. Among the functionalities offered are iCloud Photos, enabling users to maintain photo synchronization across all devices and their PC, create and manage Shared Albums, and view photos directly within the Microsoft Photos app on Windows 11.
Furthermore, iCloud Drive facilitates secure storage and retrieval of files and folders, with the ability to easily share files via File Explorer. The iCloud Passwords app allows users to conveniently manage passwords on their Windows PC, sync passwords across devices and PC using Chrome or Edge, and generate Time-based One-Time Passwords (TOTP).
Additionally, iCloud Contacts, Calendars, and Bookmarks ensure that contacts, calendars, and browser bookmarks remain updated across all devices and PC. Users can seamlessly integrate their iCloud Calendar with Outlook, while browser bookmarks in Edge, Firefox, and Google Chrome automatically synchronize with Safari.
Moreover, Apple has transformed iTunes for Windows into four separate apps, namely Apple Music, Apple TV, Devices, and iTunes. The Apple Music app offers an updated interface with features such as lossless playback, time-synced lyrics, and 4K music videos. The new Apple TV app provides access to original Apple TV+ programming, along with library and purchased or rented video content, including 4K playback and Subscription channels. The Devices app allows for updating, syncing, and backing up Apple devices, while the iTunes app continues to serve as the platform for Podcasts and Audiobooks.
