The first change in the update is the ability to generate passwords. This way, you can generate strong passwords without much hassle, a standard feature found in popular password managers. Notably, it comes after Apple released a Chrome extension to let the users access iCloud Passwords on Windows.

If you’re a creative professional who often switches between macOS and Windows, you’ll be glad to know that the latest iCloud update adds support for Apple’s ProRes videos and ProRaw photo formats. With this feature, you can efficiently sync and manage all the ProRaw images and ProRes videos shot on your iPhone from your Windows PC or even edit them in a professional photo editing software like Photoshop.

The update also brings the ability to add or remove people on iCloud Drive shared files or folders. Check out the changelog of the latest iCloud for Windows release below:

  • Allow participants of an iCloud Drive shared file or folder to add or remove people.
  • Support for Apple ProRes videos and Apple ProRaw photos.
  • Support for generating strong passwords via the iCloud Passwords app.

Other than these new changes, the update also offers security improvements in the Foundation framework, ImageIO, and WebKit.
