iCloud Drive for Windows Users Now Available to Download
Apple’s iCloud now brings the services of a virtual hard drive for storing your photos, documents, and other stuff. The iCloud virtual hard drive will compete the likes of Google Drive and Box in this business. Apple has released the iCloud Drive for Windows, but the Mac users will have to wait until the official release of Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.
The iCloud Drive will take the form of another hard drive in your Windows Explorer. It gets easily integrated with your Windows Explorer. You can easily navigate through the iCloud drive as if it is stored in your PC’s hard disk. It is quite probable that the Mac version of iCloud Drive will contain advanced features. The Windows version is also quite useful. Apple recognizes that most of the desktop users still reside to Windows PCs. Hence, cloud storage services should be available for them.
It is a fact that most of the users of IOS devices, desire some kind of cloud storage phenomenon on their Windows PC that would link the data of their smartphones with their PC easily. In terms of price, you will find iCloud to be more expensive than other cloud storage services. However, Apple as recently revised the price structure. This would certainly contribute towards lowering the price ranges in competition with services from tech giants like Google.
By pushing the app first for Windows users, Apple wants to refine the cloud storage service even more for Mac OS X users. It is not clear when Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 will be released. However, the probable date of releasing for this new version of Mac OS X is October 21 alongside iPad Air and iPad Mini. It is expected that iCloud Drive services could take even longer period of time before they are available for Mac users.
It will require some major effort from the Cupertino company to make iCloud compatible for storing many file types. After leaking out of the private celebrity images, the name of iCloud services was quite degraded in publications. The controversy will certainly affect the market of iCloud in competition with other cloud storage services.
