Users Of iCloud For Windows See Corrupted iPhone Videos With Mysterious Images

Users of iCloud for Windows are experiencing issues viewing videos and images, with corrupt footage and images from other accounts appearing on their computers.
The iCloud for Windows application allows Windows users to easily sync their photos, videos, contacts, and other items with their other Apple ecosystem hardware. However, while the service is usually reliable, some users began to experience problems on Monday.

When a small number of users try to watch video recorded on an iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro that has been synced with iCloud for Windows, they see black footage with scan lines.

Furthermore, as MacRumors reported, corrupted videos can sometimes insert still images from unknown sources. According to one user, the stills include pictures of other people’s families and soccer games.

While AppleInsider staff have not personally experienced the issue, we have confirmed other reports about it — albeit not to the extent reported.

The source of the still images is unknown, but it’s possible that they came from other iCloud accounts. Attempts to reinstall iCloud for Windows do not resolve the issue, indicating that it is most likely a server-side issue.

Apple has been notified of the incidents. Employees are working on a solution, but no confirmation has been provided.
