iCloud for Windows 10 Update Fixes Incompatibility Issues

Apple has released an update to the iCloud for Windows app.  The update, version 7.8.1 for those keeping score at home, fixes some incompatibility issues with the newest version of the Microsoft Operating System.

In October, Microsoft released version 1809 of Windows 10.  The release did not go smoothly on several fronts, including iCloud for Windows.  The issue was that some users could not update Shared Albums after upgraded to 1809.  Microsoft went as far as to block the app from being download by Windows users, stating they were working with Apple on a fix.  It appears that fix has now arrived.

While the release notes for the update do not explicitly call out a fix for the Shared Album bug, support documents on Apple’s site confirms that it is fixed and users should not have any further issues.

If you have the app installed on your Windows 10 machine, be sure to check for an update to get to the new 7.8.1 version to assure you don’t have any issues.

For those unfamiliar with the app, iCloud for Windows allows users who have Windows 10 machines to sync their iCloud files, email, photos, and other content to their PC to have available offline.  You can download the app from Apple’s support page.
