OneDrive 4.5.1 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

Windows and Office maker Microsoft on Wednesday pushed a small but important update to OneDrive, its cloud storage client for the iPhone and iPad. The refreshed application enables users to lock content in the app using Touch ID-based fingerprint verification on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The new OneDrive 4.5.1, a free 12.7-megabyte download from the App Store, also takes full advantage of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus,  lets you sort files and folders and includes bug fixes and stability improvements.

Leveraging Apple’s Touch ID framework in iOS 8 for third-party integration, OneDrive can be protected with fingerprint-based authentication to sign in to the app.

And to help prevent others from accidentally making changes to your files, you can now set up a PIN code. And as seen on the screenshots top of post, OneDrive at last makes it possible to sort the files and folders on your device.

Lastly (you guessed right), OneDrive will no longer appear fuzzy on the bigger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screens as Microsoft has gotten around adjusting the software to make use of the extra screen real estate.

OneDrive 4.5.1 changelog:

  • Pin code and Touch ID support (Touch ID requires iOS 8)
  • Sort files and folders
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements

In related app news, Pocket and PDF Expert 5 both gained native support for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus display sizes.

OneDrive is available free in the App Store.

  • In fact, they should make a better interface: it isn’t ugly, but it should be more windows, In my opinion, more like XBOX Smartglass, with the windows phone patterns

    • The app works fine but I hardly use OneDrive due to its stupid storage restrictions I have 1tb of storage but can only upload files of a few gigabytes in size unless I split files into parts and upload each part…

        Files can be up to 10 GB now

    Sweet. I hope more app developers come on board and add Touch ID authentication to use the app/see its contents.

    I’m looking at you, Facebook!

    • Since when did Facebook care about privacy and security?

      • James G

        Since never.

        Patiently waiting for iOS 8 jb!

    I want my online banking apps to support Touch ID.

    • James G

      Same here. I already wrote my Credit Union about it, but it took them 11 months just to do an iOS 7 update, so we’ll see…

    I originally signed up for a one drive account on an android device and got 15gb extra for turning on camera uploads, I have since come back to iPhone and just turned on camera uploads within the one drive app and it gave me another 15gb of storage for free, I don’t know if it’s a glitch because of the 2 different operating systems but it would be worth a try getting someone you know with an android device to sign into your one drive and turn on camera uploads for you temporarily to see if you get any additional storage space like I did
