Microsoft seemingly has come to some kind of partnership agreement with Apple and is bringing support for iCloud Photos to the Windows 11 Photos app. Microsoft also announced on October 12 that the Apple Music and Apple TV apps available in the Microsoft Store at some point in 2023.
"Excited on our partnership with Apple to bring great experiences for iPhone users to Windows and Xbox - with iCloud integration in Photos app, Apple Music & Apple TV coming to the Microsoft Store!" tweeted Mik Chernomordikov, Group Program Manager for Worldwide Partner and Developer Ecosystem on Windows., during the streamed Microsoft event.
To test this, Insiders need to sign into the iCloud for Windows app on their PCs and select Photos. Their iCloud photos will appear alongside photos from other sources in the "All Photos" gallery view, as well as on a dedicated page accessible from the side navigation pane.
During today's Surface event, officials also said that Apple Music is available already on Xbox but that the app will be coming at some point next year to the Microsoft Store, as well, so that it works on PCs. They also said the Apple TV app would be coming to the Store in 2023 but offered no additional details or timing beyond that.
