iPhone, iPad Users Get 30 FREE GB of OneDrive Storage, WP and Android Too
Free drive storage is always awesome, no matter from where it’s coming from. Now, Microsoft is increasing its OneDrive free storage from 15GB to 30GB for iPhone users. It’s been said that Redmond wants to take advantage of iOS 8 problems
Since the new boss Nadella has taken over, Microsoft has changed its attitude towards customers coming from rival companies, finally releasing the Microsoft Office suite for iPad users.
Now the company wants more iPhone users to back up their photos, videos, and other important documents on OneDrive. And as iCloud only offers 5GB of free storage, 30 GB is quite an enticing offer. Who knows, maybe Apple will respond with a subsequent increase, as well. Here’s what Microsoft said on its blog:
“We’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones released today and we wanted to get you more storage right away. We think you’ll appreciate having more free storage while setting up your iPhone 6 or upgrading to iOS 8. It’s a limited time offer, so act fast and download OneDrive for iOS.”
However, Android or Windows Phone will also get their storage increased to 30GB. It’s really nice to see that Microsoft is extending its deals to the entire base of users, regardless of the platform they’re using.
To get the 30GB of free storage, you just need to sign up for a free OneDrive account, and activate the auto upload feature from the camera-roll. If you have already signed up for OneDrive, the storage should increase to 30GB, unless the auto upload feature has not been activated. Here’s what else Microsoft said:
“When you are setting up your new phone with OneDrive, all your photos and videos will be available instantly without taking up precious space on your device. You can also can get more done with the combined power of OneDrive, Office Mobile, and OneNote. With this limited time offer, we are excited to see even more people choose OneDrive as the one place for everything in their life.”
