Apple announced an upgrade to the iCloud Utility for Windows on Wednesday, allowing PC users to utilize some of Apple’s cloud services. The current version of iCloud for Windows has a built-in password generator, as well as compatibility for the ProRAW and ProRes codecs.
The iCloud Utility for Windows was upgraded in August to include a password manager, allowing users to access their stored credentials from both Apple devices and Windows PCs. This experience has now been enhanced by the addition of a feature that allows users to construct secure passwords that can be used by apps or websites, similar to macOS and iOS.
