Microsoft releases a new update for OneDrive for iOS with new features and improvements

Microsoft has released a new update for OneDrive for iOS users. The new update brings new features and improvements for the app.

With the new update, iOS users can use the photo search feature that allows them to search for photos using keywords like dog, cat, flower, and sunrise. The update also patches bugs including the wrong file size issue on iPad and file upload problems when using the share option on iOS. Here’s the full changelog of the update:

  • Circles, squares, and lines, oh my. PDF mark up isn’t in Kansas anymore, now you can add shapes.

  • Sometimes, when attempting to upload something via the share extension, it would show the last item that you uploaded via the share extension, rather than the newly-selected one. Other times, the correct item would show, but it would be stuck in a waiting state after you hit upload. Both of these issues have been fixed.

  • Did you know that your photos are searchable? Find the memory you are looking for with the new search bar in the Photos tab. Dog, cat, flower, sunrise–search away!

  • iPad users sometimes saw the the wrong file size displayed when downloading a photo or video to their device. This was very confusing and has been fixed.

  • Our scan button used to shrink whenever we showed a toast message. It got tired, took a long nap and hasn’t been shrinking properly lately. Thankfully, it’s now awake, fully rested and will animate when it’s supposed to.

Microsoft has been actively updating the OneDrive app for both Android and iOS users. Last year, OneDrive for iOS got a major revamp with an improved design as well as dark mode. Earlier this year, Microsoft added dark mode on OneDrive for Android as well and brought support for Pixel 4’s face unlock.

The latest OneDrive update is rolling out to the iOS users and can be downloaded from the App Store.
