The software giant, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), is doubling the amount of cloud storage to 30 GB on its OneDrive for Apple iOS8 users. This app is having a feature called “camera roll,” which enables automatic upload of newly clicked photos to the storage.
This extra 15GB given by the company is intended for camera roll bonus for the users. For those who are not using an iPhone can still avail this offer as it applies to anyone who already has a OneDrive camera roll on Windows Phone (Windows Phone Store), Android (Google Play Store) and Windows PC.
“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 get more done with the combined power of OneDrive, Office Mobile, and OneNote,” said by Douglas Pearce Group Program Manager, OneDrive in a blog post. “With this limited time offer, we are excited to see even more people choose OneDrive as the one place for everything in their life.”
The company is offering 30GB of free storage (15GB for base storage and 15GB for camera roll) and this offer is good for the rest of September, but the extra free storage space should persist “going forward.” If you haven’t downloaded OneDrive on Android, you’ll be guided through the process once you install the app. If you already have it, check the primary Settings menu for the option.
Apple also updated its iCloud Drive for the Windows users. However, it can only be used when an individual has already set up an iCloud account through an iOS 8 device or Mac. iCloud currently offers a storage of 5GB.
