Microsoft Blocks Windows 10 Version 1809 Update for Apple Users

Microsoft has recently decided to block the update to Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018 Update) for Apple users running iCloud for Windows on their computers.

The company says its Cupertino-based rival has detected a compatibility issue in its software that causes certain problems, like failed installations.

The bug exists in iCloud for Windows version 7.7.0.27, Microsoft says, and users running it may experience problems when trying to update or sync Shared Albums in Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Furthermore, the software giant explains that devices where Windows 10 version 1809 is already running and users attempt to install the said incompatible iCloud release are provided with a warning that the installation would fail.

“To ensure a seamless experience, Microsoft is blocking devices with iCloud for Windows (version 7.7.0.27) software installed from being offered Window 10, version 1809 until this issue has been resolved,” Microsoft notes.
