Windows 10 has never been stable since its release. Even after the updates rolled out, one or the other, we kept hearing of the coming issues. This time its Windows compatibility with iCloud that has made the news.
Microsoft is working with Apple to ensure a stable integration with iCloud.
Recently reported, Windows 10 is having issues with iCloud compatibility since the October update rolled out. This recently identified bug with Windows Version 22.214.171.124 makes it difficult for users to sync their pictures and videos on iCloud. The bug has made it difficult for people who often share data over multiple Apple devices. The bug has been confirmed by Microsoft in an update about the next release, where it states that some users might have inconvenience in sharing or syncing their data.
“Apple has identified an incompatibility with iCloud for Windows (version 126.96.36.199) where users may experience issues updating or syncing Shared Albums after updating to Windows 10, version 1809.”
Microsoft also stated that it is working to resolve the issue and until then it has blocked the update for some users to prevent inconvenience or unpleasant experiences.
“Users who attempt to install iCloud for Windows (version 188.8.131.52) on Windows 10, version 1809 will see a message stating that this version of iCloud for Windows isn’t supported, and the installation will fail. To ensure a seamless experience, Microsoft is blocking devices with iCloud for Windows (version 184.108.40.206) software installed from being offered Window 10, version 1809 until this issue has been resolved”
The company also stated that it is working on the release of Version 1809 which is going to be iCloud compatible.
