Tonight, we are pleased to announce that we are doubling the amount of free storage you get with OneDrive. While it might seem strange to announce new features on a Friday evening, we’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones released today and we wanted to get you more storage right away. We think you’ll appreciate having more free storage while setting up your iPhone 6 or upgrading to iOS 8. It’s a limited time offer, so act fast and download OneDrive for iOS.
All you have to do is sign up for OneDrive and activate the auto upload feature for your camera roll sometime between now and the end of September, and you will get 30 GB of free OneDrive storage moving forward (15 GB base and 15 GB camera roll bonus). For those getting ready to install iOS8, this means you won’t have to delete a bunch of photos or apps to make room for the upgrade. For those buying a new phone, it means you can take all the high-resolution photos and videos you want without worrying about the amount of storage you have.
Not an iPhone user? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. This also applies to anyone who already uses the OneDrive camera roll on Windows Phone (Windows Phone Store), Android (Google Play Store) and Windows (Download) – you’ll see your storage go up as well. Same for any existing iPhone users who backup their photos to OneDrive.
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.
With this limited-time offer, we are excited to see even more people choose OneDrive as the one place for everything in their life.
