Microsoft working with Apple to fix Windows 10 iCloud bug

Microsoft's Windows 10 October update saw a minor hiccup at the time of the rollout (last month) due to which it was halted and was re-released this month. Unfortunately, after users installed the latest version in the system, they started facing issues while using iCloud.

The app also gives you the option to Tweet a gif of your highest scoring attempt. You'll have trouble updating or synchronizing Shared Albums after upgrading.

As of now, whosoever wishes to install the latest version of iCloud for Windows version 7.7.0.27 on Windows 10 will receive a message, which states that the latest version is not supported and hence the installation will not happen. That makes it amply clear the latest October 2018 update hasn't yet been factored in so far as the compatibility of the iCloud app with Windows 10 is concerned.

The Microsoft October Update might as well be called the Updategeddon at this point, because it seems to be riddled with bugs that just keep coming.

For those unaware, Microsoft's new Windows 10 October 2018 update comes with Dark Mode for apps, which is not only the visually appealing interface but also cuts power consumption.

Additionally, the users are facing various issues related to photos' syncing and other features that were found to be irksome.

If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you "Check for updates", so you avoid encountering any known problems.

Once again, Microsoft has put an "upgrade block" in place to prevent Windows Update from updating systems with an F5 VPN installed. Meanwhile, the support page has confirmed that Microsoft is working with Apple to come up with a fix.
