Sync iPhone Photos to Windows
If yesterday’s event was mainly devoted to showing the novelties of Surface Laptop 5, Pro 9, and Studio 2 +, Microsoft also presented new software for Windows 11.
In addition to a creation application based on the intelligence program artificial DALL.E 2, the Microsoft OS soon welcomes the synchronization of iPhone photos to a Windows PC.
When the update is officially deployed, you must download the iCloud application from the Microsoft Store and launch the Photos application.
By checking the right settings, iPhone owners can directly and automatically synchronize their photos on their Windows PC.
These will appear in the “All Photos” gallery (redesigned for the occasion), alongside photos from other sources, or on a dedicated iCloud Photos page.
Consuming Apple content on Windows
Microsoft also announces a major arrival next year. The Apple Music and Apple TV+ apps will finally be downloadable from the Microsoft Store, a month after Microsoft brought Android apps there.
There will, therefore, no longer be a need to go through the browser versions to enjoy its audio and video content.
However, no specific date has been revealed for the PC versions, but Xbox owners can now install Apple Music.
The app will join alongside Apple TV+, which has been available for two years now on Xbox consoles. Recall that PlayStation 5 owners already had access to Apple Music and Apple TV +.
