Users of Apple’s iPhone will soon be able to access their photo and video libraries via the Photos app on Windows 11 PCs and tablets thanks to a new integration between iCloud and Windows 11. Users of Windows 11 will need to download iCloud from the Microsoft Store and synchronize it with the Photos app to make use of the feature.

The “All Photos” gallery view will now feature images from three separate locations: local storage, OneDrive, and iCloud, which is a nice addition given that the Photos app already displayed content from OneDrive. Use the “iCloud Photos” link in the sidebar to visit a specialized page.
Moreover, Microsoft has announced that Apple Music is now accessible on Xbox One. Apple Music joins Apple TV as the second Apple streaming service coming to Xbox in 2019; both services’ respective apps will be available for Windows PCs in 2020.
