Earlier this week, when Apple officially released iOS 8, a lot of iPhone and iPad users have been complaining about the large free storage their phone requires in order for them to download the OS update. Seems like Microsoft is taking advantage of these issues when it doubles the amount of OneDrive storage up to 30GB starting from September 20, 2014.
According to Douglas Pearce, OneDrive Program Manager, "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."
The iOS 8 upgrade requires users to have 5.7GB (or more, depending on the device) of free storage. To make room for the update, iOS users have been deleting photos, videos and other files. With the free storage upgrade from OneDrive, users won't need to do this hassle and time consuming effors. Microsoft also increased the camera roll bonus from 3GB to 15GB.
The free OneDrive update is available until the end of the September.
