Microsoft Adds iPad Multitasking Support to OneDrive iOS App

Microsoft Adds iPad Multitasking Support to OneDrive iOS App

Microsoft has added support for Slide Over and Split View, the multitasking features available on select iPads running iOS 9, to its OneDrive app for iOS.

Last year, Apple increasingly tooled and marketed iPads as productivity devices – and Microsoft has eagerly taken to this with many of its iOS apps. In the release notes for the new OneDrive update, Microsoft says that the app “now supports split screen multitasking on compatible iOS 9 devices.”

So, that means support for Slide Over, which can be used on the iPad Pro, iPad Air or later and iPad Mini 2 or later, and Split View, which is available on the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4.

The update also allows an Office 365 subscription to be bought within the app. With this, 1TB of OneDrive storage – that’s compared to the free allocation of just 5GB per user – will be on offer. Various Microsoft apps on iOS, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, can save seamlessly to this storage.

The OneDrive iOS app is freely available for both iPhone and iPad from the App Store.
