OneDrive Devices Microsoft

Microsoft has this week updated its OneDrive cloud storage app on two supported platforms. Users on Windows 10 and Apple’s iOS are now receiving separate updates for the service.

Let’s look at the OneDrive app for Microsoft’s own Windows 10. With the latest release, the solution has been bumped to version 19.22.5.0. Users who download the update will now be able to toggle the Dark Mode on the app.

To access Dark Mode, head into the Settings menu and select the option to make Dark Mode the default theme for OneDrive.

Elsewhere, the Windows 10 app has received the usual round of bug fixes and performance improvements. As is normally the case, Microsoft has offered no details on the specifics of these minor tweaks.

Update for iOS

OneDrive on Apple’s iOS has also received an update this week. Following a recent update to align with iPadOS, OneDrive on iOS is now on version 11.6. This new release is focused on improving the shared view experience.

Specifically, Microsoft has added one major new component to the tool. While shared view looks the same as before, it now sports “groupings”, while allow users to see who shared a document and when it was shared.

Here’s the full changelog for Version 11.6:

  • “The shared view got even better now with new groupings for who shared documents to you and when they were shared. Getting back to your collaborative work is a breeze when you can easily organize your shared view!
  • iOS 13 users sharing OneDrive files – via the Messages app – may have noticed the app having a rough time. We sent it to OS school and it came back a lean, mean, messaging machine.
  • Some iPad users were experiencing an unresponsive OneDrive when coming back to the app – black screen, app crashes, the works. This has been fixed and the app will work as expected.
  • Users doing a very specific set of actions in a shared library would see the top bar selfishly cover the Shared Library icon. Boundaries have been restored for these components and this has been fixed.
  • We’ve fixed an issue with our multi window experience on iPad preventing some PDFs and Office files from being able to open in a new window. This has been fixed and all your PDFs, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files should now successfully open in a new window.
  • This wouldn’t be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please shake your device and tap “Report a Problem.””
