One user writes that “iCloud for Windows is corrupting videos recorded by an iPhone 14 Pro Max, resulting in black videos with static lines. On rare occasions, he inserts stills of video from an unknown source, possibly from someone else’s iCloud account. I’ve seen pictures of other people’s families that I’ve never seen in vita mia, football matches and other random photos. Of course, this is extremely concerning and makes me unsure about using iCloud.”

These are just some user reports, so it’s difficult to understand if the images are actually from another account. But seen the potential risk to the privacy of individuals and their familieswe have decided to report the matter even without official confirmation from Apple.

It seems that deleting and reinstalling the app doesn’t fix the issue, so it could be a server problem. In any case, several users have reported the matter to Cupertino. That will have to check what’s going on, if it depends on the Apple servers or on some settings of the Windows PCs (HDR, HEVC, particular codecs).
