Apple and Microsoft have teamed up to offer a brand new iCloud experience to the Windows 10 users. "You can easily access your photos, videos, mail, calendar, files, and other important information from your iCloud account on the go and on your Windows 10 PC". Since it's in the Microsoft Store, is it a UWP?

While Apple has never been in a hurry to release Store versions of its apps, the company recently shipped its second Windows 10 application, as it chose to port iCloud to the Microsoft Store as well.

Just like the new iTunes for Windows app that can be had through the Microsoft Store, Apple appears to have done the minimum when adhering to Windows 10 design.

While Apple eventually released an iCloud update that was compatible with Windows 10, PC users still encountered slow sync speeds and other issues, the report added.

Additionally, the app also displays the amount of iCloud storage that you can use, as well as how much you can still store in the cloud.
