Apple and Microsoft fixing serious iCloud bug

Although Microsoft has restarted the rollout process for its beleaguered Windows 10 October 2018 Update, it appears some problems are persisting, as people are finding they can not use iCloud after installing the update. Now, another issue has come to light after the update that is making it hard for users to sync their photos and videos with Apple's iCloud service.

Microsoft has temporarily halted the rollout of its October 2018 update for Windows 10 (version 1809), writing in a page dedicated to the update that it would 'investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating'.

We have to understand that if the user attempt to install iCloud for Windows (version 7.7.0.27) on Windows 10, version 1809 will see a message pop up stating that this version of iCloud for Windows isn't supported, and the installation will fail. For the moment, Microsoft is "blocking devices with iCloud for Windows (version 7.7.0.27) software installed from being offered Window 10, version 1809 until this issue has been resolved".

It's certainly a frustrating issue, but the good news is that Microsoft is working with Apple to fix these issues.

In a rare show of cooperation, Microsoft and Apple are working together to keep iCloud of Windows 10 October 2018 update.

At least the Windows 10 October 2018 Update isn't compatible with Apple's cloud service right now. The initial version reportedly brought along a number of bugs due to which Microsoft had to pull it up.

I'm sure one day we'll get the full story of how Microsoft stuffed up so magnificently with its October updates (much as we did with Vista), but for now, we'll just have to hope November doesn't turn out the same.
