Although Microsoft restarted the deployment process for its besieged Windows update on October 10, 2018, it seems that some problems persist as people find that they cannot use iCloud after installing the update.
If users try to install the latest version of iCloud for Windows 10, version 126.96.36.199 with the update already installed in October 2018, an error message appears that says “iCloud for Windows requires Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 (update from April 2018) and earlier.
If you already have an application installed, you may find that there are several problems with using file and photo synchronization software with Apple's cloud storage service.
To work together
This is certainly disappointing, but the good news is that Microsoft is working with Apple to fix these problems.
In a post on the Windows 10 Update support website, Microsoft noted that “Apple has identified incompatibility with iCloud for Windows (version 188.8.131.52), where users may experience problems updating or synchronizing shared albums after upgrading to Windows 10, version 1809.
Version 1809 – October 2018 update. At the moment, Microsoft "is blocking devices with iCloud software for Windows (version 184.108.40.206) installed from the offered window 10, version 1809, until this problem is fixed."
So, if you already have iCloud installed, you will find that you cannot install the October 2018 update. This is annoying, but better if you find that your folders and files are no longer synced with iCloud.
Microsoft claims that it is working with Apple to create a compatible version of iCloud for the October 2018 update, which will be included in the upcoming version. I hope we do not have to wait too long.
