Apple Could Launch Another Windows 10 App 

Apple could release another app for Windows 10, as the company may be planning to bring iCloud to the Microsoft Store.

Apple could release another app for Windows 10, as the company may be planning to bring iCloud to the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft watcher WalkingCat found evidence that a Store version of iCloud is already in the works, albeit it’s obviously way too early to discuss other details like the release date.

However, bringing iCloud to the Microsoft Store isn’t something totally unexpected from Apple. The Cupertino-based giant released iTunes for Windows 10 last year, and by the looks of things, iCloud is next on the company’s agenda.

Also, such a port isn’t necessarily a difficult project for a company the size of Apple. Most likely, Cupertino would turn to the Centennial desktop bridge to port the Windows version of iCloud to the Microsoft Store, an approach that the company also used for iTunes.The benefits of a UWP appBringing iCloud to the Microsoft Store allows Apple to expand in a market where its application would otherwise be unavailable.

While iCloud is already available on the Windows desktop, a Microsoft Store version would also expand the availability to Windows 10 installs limited to UWP apps, as it’s the case of Windows 10 in S Mode. This particular configuration is specifically aimed at the education market, where teachers and students can block the installation of Win32 software for extra security, so Apple can thus make its service available to this category of users as well.

Most likely, the Store version of iCloud will be very similar to the one on the desktop, with the same feature package to be offered to Windows 10 users. The Store app, however, comes with a series of benefits, like a more straightforward auto-updating engine.
