With iCloud photo libraries playing nice with Windows 11 machines, it’s never been easier for iPhone users to view their photos and videos on a Windows computer.

The buck doesn’t stop there. Microsoft has also announced that Apple Music will be available on Xbox One consoles. In addition, the company also says Apple Music and the Apple TV app will launch on Windows next year.

Integrations like these are just one way Microsoft is making Windows available to more people. And with them integrating one of its biggest competitors into its ecosystem – it’s clear Microsoft has big plans.
