  1. Issues syncing Win 10 People app with iCloud


    I have successfully added my iCloud account to the People app using an app-specific password and it claims to be syncing OK...however there are simply no contacts appearing in the People App at all! In the account sync setting I have enabled Contacts and Calendar syncs and my calendar items are happily syncing back and forth.


    Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Are iCloud Contacts Supposed to Sync Automatically With Windows 10 Phone People App?

    • Used OL on Windows 10 PC to create iCloud contact.
    • Contact shows in People and List view when (in OL). If I select the iCloud folder, and I select‘People’ from the bottom bar at lower left, the added contact shows in both List View and People view.

      Note: The added contact in question does NOT show on either an iPad or the Windows 10 phone People app.
    • Not sure what you mean by “sign out and sign in”. From where? PC? Phone? And how?
    If I bring up the iCloud app on PC, the Calendar and Contacts option is checked. Calendar is behaving just fine, BTW - it's only Contacts where I'm having this problem.



    Have done many, many soft resets – no joy.

    So it seems that I'm not causing a sync to occur between the Windows 10 PC and iCloud. What steps can I take to get that accomplished?

    Thanks.

  3. Can't setup iCloud account in the People app

    I am trying to add my iCloud account to the People app in Windows 10 (Fall Creator's Edition).

    My steps:

    1. I start the People app and click Add Accounts.
    2. I select iCloud from the list. For email address, I enter my login email address for iCloud. For Send your messages..., I enter my name. And then the iCloud password. And then click Sign in.
    3. It says Your account was setup successfully, but then when I dismiss the dialog, it says

      .

    What am I missing? Why does it not connect?

    People app problems with iCloud contact pictures

    Hi,

    Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

    I would suggest you to install iCloud control panel and check if you get an option to sync People App in it.

    Refer to the article:

    Download iCloud for Windows

    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to contact Apple Support for further assistance.

    iCloud - Official Apple Support

    Hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance or information on this issue, reply back to this post. I will be glad to help you.
