Apple has begun inviting members of its AppleSeed software customer seeding program to test the beta version of iCloud for Windows.
Ahead of offering an iCloud for Windows beta to AppleSeed members, Apple released a beta version of the software to developers. The latest version of that beta, launched on July 21, noted that iCloud Drive functionality was only available on on OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, so it appears that Windows users may be getting their first functional look at iCloud Drive with the launch of the AppleSeed beta.
Interested beta testers are required to have a PC running Windows 7 or later. While trying out the prerelease software, they are encouraged to provide Apple with quality and usability feedback on iCloud for Windows in general and iCloud Drive in particular.
Apple is expected to officially launch iCloud Drive with the public release of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. The latest version of its mobile operating system is likely to be released alongside the “iPhone 6″ later this month. But the new version of its desktop operating system, whose latest developer preview was released earlier today, is expected to be publicly available as early as October.
