In Mid-December, Microsoft will be releasing a number of updates to OneDrive for Business for iOS. This update will include several new Office 365 features.
New features Available in OneDrive for Business for iOS
With these new features, you will be able to utilize:
Drag and drop support – You can drag files from other apps, such as iMessage, into your OneDrive, drag files out of your OneDrive to other apps, and drag files in between folders in OneDrive.
iOS Files app support – OneDrive integration with the Apple Files app allows you to access, upload, edit, and save your content to OneDrive or SharePoint from apps that support File app integration. You can also tag and favorite your OneDrive and SharePoint files from within the Files app.
Preview more file types in your OneDrive app – The OneDrive iOS app creates crisp thumbnails and supports large previews of over 130+ file types, including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, RAW, 3D objects, and high-precision DICOM. OneDrive lets you open, view, and share all of your files without leaving the app.
OneDrive redesigned to find the files that matter – The OneDrive for iOS app has been redesigned from the ground up with a new layout that uses your screen space more efficiently allowing you to find your files faster.
Universal links support – OneDrive for Business and SharePoint links to files or folders will now open directly in the OneDrive app.
If you manage OneDrive via Intune mobile application management, you should note:
1. When you drag and drop files out of OneDrive the “Allow app to transfer data to other apps” policy will be applied. As such, if you block data transfer to unmanaged apps, the normal policy will be honored.
2. OneDrive access via the Files app will be disabled to protect your data and keep it in the application sandbox. Microsoft are looking into adding support in a future release.
