First of all, there are a lot of UI and UX improvements in this release including new context menus, larger and more detailed thumbnails and more. The app now lets you drag and drop files between on iPhone and iPad, and you can even drag and drop content to other apps on iPads exclusively.
On iOS 11, OneDrive now supports Apple’s Files app, which already integrates many cloud storage services such as Apple’s own iCloud and Dropbox. You can use this app to access all your files stored in OneDrive or Sharepoint, update them and even classify them using tags and favorites.
Other highlights in OneDrive 10.1 for iOS include previews for over 130 file types, Microsoft Flow integration for work and school accounts, landscape support and other UI fixes on the iPhone X. You can download OneDrive for iOS from the download link below.
