Whether you use OneDrive for your personal photos and files or for work or school, we’ve got a big app update for you.
For iOS 13 & 14 users, we’ve got a new tab, just for you:
∙ We’ve added a new Home tab to help you pick up where you left off, fast. The new Home tab prominently features your Recent view for easy access to your files and an Offline Files section to quickly access and manage files you’ve downloaded for offline access.
∙ For OneDrive personal users, On This Day is now featured at the top of your new Home tab.
∙ For users of OneDrive at work or school, you can easily get to your Shared Libraries right from the Home tab.
We’re thrilled to offer iOS 14 users a OneDrive widget. We’ve made 2 improvements to it in this update:
∙ We’ve fixed an issue causing an unexpected dialog to show when you tapped the widget to sign into a personal account.
∙ We’ve improved our widget to show even sharper, crisper image previews.
We're continuing to invest and improve the Camera Upload feature. We’ve heard your feedback and we’re investing in this experience. There’s still more to do and we’re constantly working to improve, so stay tuned.
∙ We’ve updated how we upload your camera roll photos to increase the upload performance, uploading more content with fewer calls.
∙ The camera upload feature will now pause if the app can’t access all your photos and provide easy steps to get it running again.
∙ We’ve fixed a bug causing the app to terminate in the background for many users.
∙ We fixed a bug with the notification for “Camera Upload has stopped” which was causing it be quite noisy and annoying.
We've added some additional improvements to help you work with your files and folders:
∙ There was a crash affecting on premises users directly after sign in. This has been fixed.
∙ We updated our folder iconography to better highlight shared status in list and grid view. This also comes with subtle improvements to some Office file type icons in the app.
∙ We’ve added Scribble support, allowing users to write in any text field, including PDF annotation mode, so your writing will automatically be converted to typed text.
∙ Our loading screens now shimmer with a little more predictability and pizazz than they did before.
∙ We fixed a visual bug with where the + button wasn’t showing with the right colors in Dark Mode.
∙ We fixed an issue with our accessibility label for InputTextField so this can be read properly by VoiceOver.
∙ We updated our logic for calculating when you might be in a meeting to optimize our “Meeting Note Share” feature which enables you to easily share your scans taken during a meeting with other attendees.
∙ We fixed a crash in our app that sometimes occurred when attempting to take a scan.
This wouldn't be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please shake your device and tap "Report a Problem".

The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.
Saving to OneDrive is now a pain
UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars.
Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.
Good but needs to be MUCH better
It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.
