Earlier this month, some users found Microsoft’s OneDrive service had accepted files larger than 2GB, which was officially confirmed later: the OneDrive now supports uploading of files up to 10GB.
Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella continue its “Cloud First Mobile First” strategy and improve the cloud storage service offering 15GB of Camera roll bonus for syncing mobile device’s camera roll to the service.
In a blog post, Douglas Pearce, Group Program Manager, OneDrive said, “We think you’ll appreciate having more free storage while setting up your iPhone 6 or upgrading to iOS 8.”
It’s a sign of relief for those who are trying to free up some space on iPhones to make way for the iOS 8 update, which is being severed as a compressed package that needs about 5GB of free space to extract and install. If you are in such a cumbersome situation and don’t want to delete your music, pictures, videos or apps on your iPhone, just turn on Camera Backup feature in the OneDrive app and 15GB of bonus storage.
The extra 15GB free storage won’t expire, and will be added to the 15GB of free storage currently offered by OneDrive (25GB for those who were one of the early SkyDrive users)
This applies not only to iPhone users but also anyone can redeem this offer by syncing photos from their camera roll to OneDrive using the OneDrive app for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.
FYI, this is a limited time offer sometime between now and the end of September. So Hurry up!
