Apple Music is finally arrives in the Microsoft Store today. Xbox users can access it right away, and it’s coming to Windows next year as well. Both Apple Music and Apple TV will soon be available in preview versions for Windows, giving Apple subscribers native access to music and TV shows on Windows without having to use web versions or the pre-existing iTunes app. Microsoft also integrates iCloud Photos into the built-in Photos app on Windows 11.
A new update makes iCloud Photos appear in the main Windows Photos app, making it easy for iPhone owners to find photos from their devices on a Windows PC or laptop. All Windows users need to do is install Apple’s latest iCloud Windows app to get this integration.
These new Apple integrations on Windows and Xbox follow the launch of Apple TV on Xbox consoles nearly two years ago and the appearance of Apple Music on PS5 last year. It’s taken a while for Apple to fully support Windows and the Microsoft Store here, but the iCloud Photos integration is especially a welcome addition for iPhone users who also happen to use a Windows laptop or PC.
