iCloud for Windows Updated by Apple to Resolve Syncing Issues With Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Published

on

Apple has updated iCloud for Windows to version 7.8.1. The latest update comes days after Apple blocked some Windows users from updating the previous iCloud app. The app essentially had compatibility issues with the Windows 10 October 2018 update (version 1809). The iCloud for Windows build that had issues with the latest Windows update was version 7.7.0.27. Among other issues, the app was restricting users from syncing their Shared Albums. Apple had identified the incompatibility of its iCloud app with machines running Windows version 1809.

While Apple hasn’t revealed any new features or bug fixes the latest iCloud for Windows carries, it appears to fix the compatibility issues with the Windows 10 October 2018 update. The official support page confirms that the latest update requires Microsoft Windows 7 or later. It also requires Outlook 2007 or later or iCloud.com for emails, contacts, and calendar; and Internet Explorer 10 or later, Firefox 30 or later, or Google Chrome 28 or later for bookmarks.

You can download the iCloud for Windows version 7.8.1 by visiting the Apple Support website. 9to5Mac reports that prior to the latest iCloud app update, Apple explained on its support page that the iCloud app requires “Microsoft Windows 7 through Windows 10 April 2018 Update” to perform its operations. This means the Cupertino giant explicitly showed the incompatibility of its iCloud app with the latest Windows 10 update.

Microsoft last week specified through its support page for Windows 10 update history that the users with the iCloud for Windows version 7.7.0.27 “may experience issues updating or syncing Shared Albums after updating to Windows 10, version 1809.” The company also mentioned that users attempting to install the iCloud for Windows version 7.7.0.27 on the latest Windows October build would see a message stating that this version of iCloud for Windows isn’t supported, and the installation would fail. Notably, the same support page has now been refreshed to show that the updated iCloud for Windows resolves the previous syncing issues.

“Apple has released an updated version of iCloud for Windows (version 7.8.1) that resolves compatibility issues encountered when updating or syncing Shared Albums after updating to Windows 10, version 1809,” Microsoft highlights on its support page. The Redmond company also recommend users to update the iCloud app to the newest version before upgrading systems to the Windows 10 October 2018 update.
