Apple's iPhone

Microsoft has updated their OneDrive app on Apple’s iOS devices and has added several new features that add a fair bit more functionality to the cloud storage/management app. Once updated, the iOS OneDrive app will have the ability to scan images with the device’s camera and provide instant previews of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files without leaving the app. Here are the complete release notes:

Instantly view your Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files in the app via our new instant previewers.

Go paperless with the new Scan feature! Like magic, Scan can digitize your whiteboards, documents, and business cards.

Thank you for your great feedback. On iPad, files opened from the offline tab will now take advantage of your entire screen.

Also thanks to your feedback, we have updated the details pane to include camera information.

Finally, we have improved upload reliability for users using their work or school accounts.
