Trending: Key Zillow Group exec Greg Schwartz leaving after 12 years, amid massive changes at real estate giant

One of the new features that came with the launch iOS 8 is iCloud Drive, Apple’s attempt to create a Dropbox-like set of folders that sync between a user’s computer and mobile devices. It’s a great feature, and Windows users can now start taking advantage of it with a new tool for Microsoft’s operating system.

Users can download iCloud for Windows from Apple’s support page, and then enable iCloud Drive once it’s all set up. After that, they’ll have a set of folders on their computer that will sync with Apple’s cloud, as well as apps that support iCloud Drive.

Mac users have been left behind, though. People with Apple’s computers will get access to the new feature when Apple launches OS X Yosemite. Until then, they should probably avoid upgrading to iCloud Drive, because it will break iCloud syncing on their Mac. If the company keeps to its past patterns, Yosemite should be available to consumers in late October, so there won’t be too long a wait.
