Last week, Microsoft announced that it was working with Apple to fix an issue affecting users iCloud for Windows which could cause issues with syncing Shared Albums on the October 2018 Update for Windows 10. In the meantime, the company blocked the upgrade path for iCloud users who tried to update to the latest version of Microsoft's OS.
Now, it seems that the companies have found a solution, as Apple today released version 7.8.1 of the iCloud client for Windows, which seems to fix the issue. As spotted by 9to5mac, the support page for the client says it will run on Windows 7 or later, rather than saying it would only work up until the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
It's now up to Microsoft to re-enable the upgrade path for iCloud users, which should be a welcome bit of good news.
This particular issue is one of many that have plagued the October 2018 Update since its troublesome release. Just this week, yet another bug was discovered in Windows Media Player, and there's another upgrade block in place for some users with Intel SSDs due to problems with drivers. Hopefully, all of these issues will be ironed out in time, and this story will be no more than a reminder for Microsoft to be more careful with future releases.
