Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Devices app previews are available in the Microsoft Store for Windows 11. Microsoft said when it released the latest Windows 11 preview.

Apple’s iTunes for macOS disappeared years ago, but not for Windows. Last October, Microsoft announced that iCloud Photos, Apple TV, and Apple Music would come to Windows 11 in 2023. This is happening now with new previews for Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Devices apps. These are available in the Microsoft Store for Windows 11, but only in the US.

iCloud Photos is already available and integrated with the Windows 11 Photos app, making it easy to get photos directly from your iPhone into the Photos app.

Apple Music and Apple TV serve the same purpose on Windows 11 as they do on macOS.

Also: Is Microsoft really discontinuing security updates for “unsupported” Windows 11 PCs?

Windows users who rely on iTunes for podcasts may want to avoid previews. Apple states that after installing Apple Music Preview, iTunes will no longer open, meaning “you will not be able to access audiobooks or podcasts on this device until a compatible version of iTunes is released.” However, users can go back to iTunes by uninstalling his Apple Music app in preview.

Apple TV on Windows offers Apple TV+, movie rentals, and premium channel subscriptions. Apple notes that not all features may work as expected in preview.

The Apple Devices app is for syncing content from your Windows PC to your iOS device, and for updating, restoring, and backing up your iOS device.

Apple App Previews for Windows 11 are available beyond the latest Windows 11 Insider Previews.

Microsoft also just released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25276 to Dev Channel testers, but there’s one change that might annoy users. Including attachments in your OneDrive storage quota changes your approach to Microsoft 365 and cloud storage. This change is reflected in a new storage bar in the Settings app that shows the total size of Outlook attachments.

Windows 11 users can manage their Microsoft 365 subscription and cloud storage from the updated Settings app.

In November, Microsoft added to the Settings app in the form of storage bars that show how much cloud storage is being used by each Microsoft 365 product. He also warned that he is changing the exact Microsoft 365 apps and services data included, and that this may affect his user’s cloud storage amount after February 1, 2023. .

Microsoft has revealed that Outlook attachment data is contained in users’ OneDrive storage. This appears as a separate yellow bar below the OneDrive bar and is also reflected in the total storage bar as the yellow portion of the bar.

Users should start worrying about “cloud storage full” warnings by February 1st if they are impacted by adding Outlook attachments to their quota.

“You may see storage usage alerts, but there will be no impact on storage capacity after February 1, 2023,” Microsoft reassures Windows 11 testers.

Microsoft states in its support documentation that this change will not affect the amount of storage in mailboxes, but once users reach their OneDrive limit, their ability to send and receive email in will be interrupted. (possibly until the user makes a purchase). more storage.

“However, this may reduce the amount of cloud storage available in OneDrive. Once you reach your cloud storage quota, your ability to send and receive emails in will be interrupted,” Microsoft said. .

“To ensure you have the best possible experience, cloud storage changes and new quota bars will be gradually rolled out across app settings, Windows settings, and Microsoft accounts after February 1, 2023. If you don’t see the new storage experience in Settings or your Microsoft account, check back in the next few weeks.”

Another update in this build allows Task Manager users to create a live kernel memory dump. This provides a snapshot of kernel memory and saves it in a dump file that can be used to troubleshoot issues. The advantage over traditional bug checks is that you can keep Windows running while you fix bugs.

Microsoft’s Windows Insider team explains:

“Kernel live dumps are effective for the category of problems where something is taking a long time, but nothing is technically wrong,” Microsoft says in its documentation for the feature.
