Back in 2011, Apple launches its new storage service called iCloud. iCloud stores all documents and pictures in the cloud storage. Apart from the Mac environment, Apple launches the iCloud software for Windows. During that time, Apple did not integrate it completely with the Windows environment itself. Now, after such a long time, Apple and Microsoft collaborate together to relaunch the iCloud software for Windows 10.
The main changes of the iCloud software with the previous version is the integration. Now, the iCloud folder appears same as the other folders in the Windows Explorer. This means the users can browse through their both Windows and Mac iCloud files in their Windows environment. According to Microsoft, the technology it uses for the iCloud software is the OneDrive’s Files On-Demand feature.
Below is the features which was listed by Microsoft on its Microsoft Store.
- Access your iCloud Drive files directly from File Explorer without using up space on your PC
- Choose the files and folders you want to keep on your PC
- Safely store all your files in iCloud Drive and access them from your iOS device, Mac, and on iCloud.com
- Share any file right from File Explorer and easily collaborate with others—edits will be synced across your devices
