Windows 11’s Photos programme now incorporates Apple’s iCloud photo library.

The Photos app on Windows 11 now has iCloud Photos integration thanks to Microsoft.

The new Photographs app for Windows 11 now has iCloud Photos integration, enabling iPhone and iPad owners to manage all of their photos from a single interface.

The firm unveiled an improved version of the Photos app with a whole new UI as part of the October feature update, further emulating the style of Windows 11. For instance, this version includes modifications to make browsing, locating, managing, and consuming the photographs in your collection simpler as well as mica substance and rounded corners. The programme also makes it possible for Apple customers to connect to and access their iCloud-stored photos and movies.

However, because you must first install and set up, the integration isn’t as fluid as Microsoft makes it appear.

You may access your media using the special “iCloud Photos” tab found in the left navigation pane once you’ve linked the Photos app to the iCloud service. Your iCloud media will show up with your local and OneDrive media if you select the “All Photos” tab.

For devices running the most recent version of Windows 11, the integration is already available with the Photos app version 2022.31110.2008.0 or higher. According to the business, everyone should have access to the new feature by December. By navigating to Microsoft Store > Library and selecting Get updates, you can always check for updates.

Since the firm announced that the Apple Music and Apple TV applications will be released, the relationship between Microsoft and Apple also goes a little further.
