Apple has today updated iCloud for Windows 10 to version 7.8.1 after compatibility issues hit the proprietary cloud storage. It was reported that Apple was closely working with Microsoft to bring a glitch-free version of iCloud to Windows 10.
Many users started facing compatibility issues and error messages upon installing iCloud on a Windows 10 device. For those who had installed iCloud on their devices, their photos failed to sync, and several other bugs were noticed.
Microsoft even stopped users from upgrading to the latest Windows 10 2018 Build if they had an older version of iCloud installed on their system.
After releasing iCloud for Windows version 7.8.1, it’s being promised to fix persisting compatibility issues; the Cupertino giant has also updated its iCloud for Windows Support page.
The updated page says that the latest iCloud version is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 or later. Before Apple updated the page, it explicitly mentioned that iCloud for Windows Version 7.7 is compatible only with devices running on Microsoft Windows 7 through Windows 10 April 2018 update — thus excluding the October 2018 Windows Build.
Windows 10 October update has received strict criticism from users after Microsoft failed to resolve the bugs after multiple attempts. Microsoft even stopped rolling out the update after users started facing major issues.
