Apple today launched an iCloud update for Windows, pushing the application to version 7.8.1. This is the first update since users reported major compatibility issues between iCloud for Windows and the latest Windows October update.
As reported last weekend, Microsoft and Apple are working together to address compatibility issues. Users who install iCloud for Windows on the latest version of Windows 10 will see an error message, and users who have installed the application will encounter many problems about photo synchronization.
In the afternoon of November 27, American time, Apple released iCloud for Windows version 7.8.1, which seems to solve the compatibility problem of the October 2018 update of Windows. The following is the update log.
ICloud for Windows 7.8.1 requires Microsoft Windows 7 or higher; Outlook 2007 or higher or iCloud.com (for mail, contacts, calendar); and Internet Explorer 10 or higher, Firefox 30 or higher, or Google Chrome 28 or higher (for bookmarking).
ICloud for Windows 7.7 and higher requires Microsoft Windows 7 to Windows 10 April 2018 Update, Outlook 2007 or higher, or iCloud.com (for mail, contacts, calendar); and Internet Explorer 10 or higher, Firefox 30 or higher, or Google Chrome 28 or higher (for e-mail, contact, calendar).
