Even though it’s heavily associated to Apple’s ecosystem, iCloud is also available for Windows users. There are plenty of Windows users who love to take pictures and videos using their iPhones. If they do nothing, these media will be backed up to iCloud Photos under the users’ accounts by default.
As the old saying goes, “even the best ones have flaws.” And iCloud is no different. One of the most common iCloud errors on Windows is that iCloud Photos refuses to sync with the server. If you experience the problem, here’s the way to fix that.
Before you do anything else, check whether you have the latest version of iCloud. If you don’t, do an update. You won’t believe how many problems were fixed just by doing a simple update.
You can either download the update here or you can also do it from within Windows itself.
