Apple has released preview versions of its Apple Music and Apple TV apps on the Microsoft Store, marking the company's first official presence on the Windows platform.

The apps have a similar appearance to the ones available on macOS, but have been slightly altered for Windows. The Apple TV app operates in a similar manner to the app on Smart TVs, providing users with access to Apple TV+ and Apple TV Channels, as well as movies and TV shows from the iTunes Store. The Apple Music app is almost identical to the macOS version, but does not include the lyrics feature.

A preview app called “Apple Devices” is also available, which allows users to manage Apple devices from their Windows PC. This app replaces iTunes for syncing and backup and also enables users to restore firmware without needing to use iTunes.

To use the latest Apple apps, users must have Windows 11 version 22621.0 or higher. However, installing these apps will prevent iTunes for Windows from functioning. To regain access to iTunes, users must uninstall the apps.

In October, Microsoft announced that it will integrate Apple's iCloud storage service with the Photos app in Windows 11. After installing the iCloud for Windows app from the Microsoft Store and enabling synchronization, iPhone users with Windows devices will be able to view their iPhone photos and videos within the Photos app.
