iCloud for Windows now does Apple ProRes, ProRAW and more

Those who shoot photos in the Apple ProRAW format can now transfer those files to their Windows PC using the updated software. The tool, which sits in the Windows tray, also brings support for videos shot in the Apple ProRes format on the new iPhone 13.

As long as the iCloud Photos feature is enabled, all the images and videos in the Photos app are synced across devices. And with the new iCloud for Windows tool, now any ProRes videos and ProRAW photos will be accessible on your Windows PC via iCloud.

Speaking of the cloud, the app brings improvements to iCloud Drive — when you share a file or folder that’s stored in your iCloud Drive, people you have shared it with can now finally add or remove people at will. And last but not least, iCloud for Windows has picked up a built-in strong password generator like your iPhone, iPad and Mac.
