If you are someone working and playing in both worlds and you are hoping that one day Apple and Microsoft can play nicely together, we have some good news for you.
AppleInsider reported that users of Windows 11 will be able to download native Apple Music and Apple TV app, and Microsoft will also incorporate iCloud Photo into the OS.
According to Microsoft, the apps will be available in 2023 through the Microsoft Store. According to speculations, beta versions will soon be available for users to try.
Previously, Windows users can only access Apple TV and Apple Music through the official websites. But you can also access Apple Music through iTunes, which is available for download to Windows users.
Besides getting native apps, Windows 11 users will also be getting iCloud Photo integration with the Windows Photo app.
You can browse photos taken by your iPhone on your Windows 11 PC directly, without having to go through iTunes.
Microsoft said the feature is scheduled to launch in 2023, but a beta test will begin on Wednesday.
We are beginning to roll out an update to the Photos app today (version 2022.31100.9001.0) to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel with this new integration.
If you want to try the feature, first you have to download the iCloud for Windows app, and then just make sure ‘Photos’ is selected.
