A fan of Apple’s iCloud but happen to be tied to Microsoft’s Windows? No problem, because Apple has just updated its iCloud for Windows app to version 2.0, just in time for the iPhone 5.

With iCloud offering syncing capabilities across iOS devices as well as Macs, Windows users need not be left in the cold thanks to Apple’s software which seeks to bring the iCloud features to those not sporting a Mac.

The release, bringing iCloud for Windows up to version 2.0, brings iOS 6 compatibility to the game just in time for the next generation iPhone to be unleashed upon the masses…

The only major news here is that aforementioned iOS 6 compatibility and a new Photo Stream link that can be found in Windows Explorer. Beyond that, you’ll probably not notice a huge difference between version 2.0 and its predecessors.

Still, any update is a good update in our books, especially when it means all the latest kit will work. Now all we need is an iPhone 5 to go with that Windows PC, and we’re golden!

The iCloud for Windows system allows Windows-based iOS fans to sync all things like bookmarks and contacts, just like their Mac-toting counterparts. Well, sort of.

You can download iCloud for Windows here.

Are you an (un)fortunate Windows and iOS user?

  • I am.. It’s a really big piece of stinky shit.

  • Daniel

    Still shows iCloud 1.1 for me.

  • I am, and downloading the update now!

  • JerseyD

    I use windows and this is a welcome update. Photostream had stopped working a few months ago and this update fixed everything.

  • I’m an unfortunate windows user

  • I am an unfortunate snow leopard without icloud…..

    • c’mon, upgrading to Lion/Mountain Lion is so cheap and worth it… you dont even need to get Lion prior to getting Mountain Lion unlike Apple says, you can go straight to Mountain…
      Im brazilian as well, if you need a hand give me a shout…

  • I’m happy Windows User. They who can’t manage it, dislikes it.

  • After 5 years of my old HP computer, just bought a new one and DAMN is this nice!!! One step under the Mac. Was going to buy one but could afford it and I want at least a 15 inch screen like I have now for $700, but not for almost $2000 smh

  • Don’t know if that “(un)fortunate” part was necessary but ill let it go. As both a Mac and PC owner I can confidently say both systems do things better than the other. I use both for different purposes. Take photo stream for example. In Widows it lets you choose upload folders for your pictures, unlike on osX.

  • The main difference between this update and the previous one is that they have merged Mail, Contacts, Calenders, and tasks. This could be selected individually before, which is much better. Especially if you share account with multiple users on a little business, for example if you share calendar.
    This update sucks ….
