The iOS Microsoft OneDrive app updated to Version 11.8.7 today. This new update adds support for HEIC files, Apple’s native image format that’s used to capture high quality photography taken from an iPhone’s camera.

Here’s the official release notes for this update:

High Efficiency Image photos (Apple’s default image format) will now be uploaded in their original .heic format. This will preserve original image quality and keep files sizes nice and light – saving users space in OneDrive. This update will affect users on iOS 11 or above using an iPhone 7 or newer.
