Microsoft has restarted the whole rollout process for its Windows 10 October 2018 Update. But despite it all, it looks like some issues simply won’t go away.
Now, some users found out that they cannot use iCloud after they install the latest update.
It looks like if people try to install the latest version of iCloud for Windows 10, version 188.8.131.52 with the October 2018 Update already installed, there’s an error message that says the following:
“iCloud for Windows requires Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 (April 2018 Update) and earlier.”
If you have the application already installed, then you may find out that there are a few issues when you’re using the software in order to sync your files and pics with Apple’s iCould storage service.
Microsoft is working with Apple to fix the issue
As frustrating as this issue may seem, the good news is that Microsoft acknowledged it and it’s working together with Apple to fix it.
In a post on the Windows 10 Update support website, Microsoft has noted that “Apple has identified an incompatibility with iCloud for Windows (version 184.108.40.206) where users may experience issues updating or syncing Shared Albums after updating to Windows 10, version 1809.”
Version 1809 is the October 2018 Update. For now, Microsoft is reportedly “blocking devices with iCloud for Windows (version 220.127.116.11) software installed from being offered Window 10, version 1809 until this issue has been resolved.”
With iCloud on your computer, you cannot install October 2018 update
The thing is that if you have iCloud already installed on your system, you will, unfortunately, see that you cannot install the October 2018 update.
Anyway, as annoying as this may be, it’s still better than finding that your folders and files are no longer syncing correctly with the iCloud.
Microsoft said that the company is working together with Apple to build a compatible version iofiCloud for the October 2018 Update which will be included in a future release.
