However, updated Apple documentation indicates the issue has now been fixed.

Earlier this month Microsoft took the unusual step of blocking iCloud users from upgrading to the latest version of Windows, as people were encountering problems syncing or updating items like photos and Shared Albums.

    I almost bought a Windows machine, but news like this makes me run away quick. This is pretty bad to have an issue like this with so many people using iCloud. Not long ago they had the update that deleted people’s files, but to be fair, this happened on the Mac at least once and updates that bricked iPhones and people lost photos and such (happened to me.)
