All participants of an iCloud Drive shared file or folder are now also able to add or remove people, and Apple has introduced support for generating strong passwords using the iCloud Passwords app.

Apple debuted the new iCloud Keychain password manager app back in August, allowing Windows users to access their iCloud Keychain passwords for cross-device functionality. With strong password support, Windows users can access the same password generating technology available for Safari on iOS devices and Macs.

According to Apple's support document for the update, iCloud for Windows 13 also addresses several security vulnerabilities.

iCloud for Windows can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

Perhaps revise the title of the article would help.
"Apple Releases iCloud for Windows version 13 With Support for ProRes, ProRAW, and Strong Password Generation"
I got surprised by the "Windows 13" too. ?
wouldn't "Apple Releases iCloud version 13 for Windows" be even more clear?

Not when the software is called "iCloud for Windows".
good point but the name on the store isn't "iCloud for Windows" it is just "iCloud", in the description it mentions this version is for windows but that isn't part of the product name..
