The partnership between Microsoft and Apple will release the Apple TV and Apple Music apps for Windows in 2023. In the case of Apple TV, until now Windows PC users were recommended to access Apple TV with a web browser, but the web version of Apple TV is a ``pretty bad web app'' to access paid content Apple TV + . And Apple-related media 9to5Mac points out. For Apple Music, you'll need to use the web app version or iTunes for Windows, but 9to5Mac wrote that 'both are substandard alternatives.'

In addition, the company's genuine photo app provided for Windows 11 will be integrated with iCloud. This will allow you to seamlessly browse your iCloud Photo Library from the standard Windows Photos app.

Previously, Windows users could download a copy of their photos using the iCloud for Windows app. However, with the integration of iCloud and the Photos app, Windows users will be able to use iCloud Photos in the same way Apple users experience on Mac.

The beta version of the iCloud-integrated photo app will be available for Windows Insider Program members from October 13, 2022, and will be available to general users within the next few months.

In addition, it was revealed that Apple Music will be available on Xbox.

9to5Mac said, 'These announcements are part of Apple's prioritization of subscription revenue over hardware sales and to continue expanding Apple's content offerings to more platforms. For Apple TV, Apple Broader platform availability is important as Apple TV has a broad range of sports deals, including a deal to exclusively stream Major League Soccer starting in 2023. Apple TV will also reportedly acquire the distribution rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket . We are here.”
