Apple is set to expand its reach by launching its Apple TV, Apple Music, and Apple Devices apps on Windows this week, marking a significant move after collaborating with Microsoft.
Originally introduced in preview last year, these apps are now officially released, providing Windows users with seamless access to Apple’s ecosystem. The overhauled iCloud for Windows app complements this trio, reducing reliance on iTunes.
The Apple Music app grants access to the vast iTunes library and enables users to purchase songs and albums. Meanwhile, the Apple TV app offers a wide array of movies, TV shows, and subscription streaming content.
Additionally, the Apple Devices app facilitates backup, restore, and sync functionalities for iPhones and iPads, enhancing user convenience.
Microsoft has welcomed the launch of these apps, which also feature iCloud Photos integration on Windows, allowing users to link their iCloud Photos library to the built-in Photos app on Windows 11.
While these new apps are available on x86-based PCs running Windows 10 or Windows 11, ARM64 versions for Qualcomm-powered Windows devices are not yet accessible.
