With Apple launches Microsoft provided support despite lengthy beta testing. Rudi Hein, lead architect of the Microsoft Store, congratulated Apple on the launch via X/Twitter. Microsoft, in turn, previously integrated iCloud into Windows, which allows you to access photos and videos from Apple's cloud storage through the standard Photos app in Windows 11.
Three new Apple applications for Windows
The three programs described, along with the updated iCloud, are planned to be used instead of iTunes on Windows. Apple TV is for watching movies and TV shows, Apple Music is for listening to music, and Apple Devices is for device management, such as backing up, restoring iPhone and iPad, and syncing content. iTunes is now only used to access podcasts and audiobooks on Windows.

The final versions of Apple TV, Apple Music, and Apple Devices for Windows are now available for download in the Microsoft Store. They are only compatible with traditional PCs running Windows 10 or Windows 11. There is no confirmation yet that ARM64 versions are being developed for PCs running Qualcomm's Windows on ARM platform.
