Microsoft Courts iOS 8 Users With OneDrive Free Space Promotion
Through the end of September, Microsoft is offering new OneDrive users 30GB of free OneDrive space. That’s up from the 15GB that Microsoft traditionally offers.
To get an extra 15GB of space, you’ll need to login to the OneDrive app for iOS, Android or Windows Phone and enable the auto upload feature for the camera roll. You’ll need to enable his feature by the end of September to get the extra space.
On the one hand, we can’t help but poke a little fun at Microsoft for trying to take advantage of iOS 8 mania. On the other hand, 30GB of free cloud storage really could be useful. Especially for anyone wanting to backup an iPhone before moving to iOS 8 who doesn’t have the cloud space for their camera roll and isn’t interested in Apple’s paid offerings.
Other storage companies, including Google Drive, Dropbox and Box aren’t offering any iOS 8-targeted promotions. Google offers all users at least 15GB of space, Dropbox has a 2GB free plan and Box offers 10GB of space for free users.
