The Windows team announced earlier this month that the latest update to the Photos App would support iCloud Photos. This update started rolling out on the 9th of November and should be available to all Windows 11 users by the end of the month.
The updated Photos app available in Windows 11 already supports OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage solution. Photo and video collections from iCloud devices can be viewed directly on a PC. This integration will improve the ease of use for many iPhone users allowing photos to sync to the Photos app automatically.
To use this feature, ensure the Photos app is updated to the latest version and install the iCloud for Windows app from the Microsoft Store. Sign into your Apple account in the iCloud for Windows app and choose to sync your photos. Your iCloud Photos and Video content will now automatically appear in your Windows Photo app.
