In order to fix its issues with iOS 8, Microsoft doubles its free OneDrive space to 30GB
Earlier this week, Apple released its iOS 8, although many owners of the iPhone and iPad experienced many problems regarding the amount of free storage that is needed to install the latest operating system. Today Microsoft is trying to make benefit from these issues by doubling its free OneDrive storage to 30GB. OneDrive program manager Douglas Pearce goes on to explain that they’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhoned released today and that they wanted to get us more storage straight away. He continues to say that they think we’ll appreciate having more free storage while setting up our iPhone 6 or upgrading to iOS 8.
This brazen offer which will be available till the end of September, will see Microsoft increase its OneDrive camera roll bonus from 3GB to a whopping 15GB, with the condition you activate photo or video backup to OneDrive from the iOS app. Pearce states that for those who are in the process of installing iOS8, this will mean that you will not have to erase a lot of photos or apps to allow for space for the upgrade. 7GB of free space is what a few iOS 8 upgrades need, so users of iPhone and iPad were forced to erase apps and photos to make room for the update, or either install it by way of iTunes to in order to avoid problems reagrding space. Microsoft also seems to have iPhone 6 owners in their target. Owners who preferred 16GB models.
In the circumstance that you are not a user of the iPhone or iPad, then Microsoft will still be upgrading your OneDrive space. Users of the Android and Windows Phone that have already activated the functionality of the camera roll backup will be upgraded automatically to 15GB of OneDrive space. But if you have not activated the camera backup then you still have the chance to do so till the end of September to switch it on in order to receive 15GB of free OneDrive storage on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
