At the Surface hardware event 2022, Microsoft revealed that Apple Music and Apple TV are coming to Microsoft Store. Preview versions of Apple Music and Apple TV will be available for Windows 11 users in the coming months. However, for Xbox console users, Apple Music and the Apple TV are now available in the Store. The company is also bringing iCloud Photos integration to the updated Photos App on Windows 11.

Microsoft has started to roll out an update to the Photos App (app version 2022.31100.9001.0) in the Dev Channel that comes with the iCloud Photos integration. According to Microsoft, the updated Photos App with iCloud integration will roll out for stable users in November this year. To use this feature, users need to sign into the iCloud for Windows app on their Windows 11 PC and confirm that “Photos” are selected.

“The Microsoft Photos app allows you to view, organize, and share photos from your PC and OneDrive, and with this update, you’ll now be able to add and access your iCloud Photos directly from within the app as well. Your iCloud Photos will appear alongside photos from other sources in the beautifully redesigned “All Photos” gallery view, as well as on a dedicated page you can access from the side navigation pane,” the company explained in a blog post.

Apple Music and Apple TV will be available for Windows users in 2023. Users will be able to download the app via Microsoft Store and listen to their favorite songs from Apple Music or watch movies and TV shows on Apple TV+ natively without accessing the web browser. Preview of Apple Music and Apple TV for Windows will be available later this year.
