Microsoft doubles free OneDrive space to 30GB due to problems with insufficient memory when you upgrade to iOS 8
Microsoft announced a promotion for users of OneDrive, in which the volume of free space can be increased from 15 GB to 30 GB, and 25 GB to 40 GB for old accounts. And all of this is to help users of Apple not to run into low memory problems during the transition to the eighth version of the operating system iOS, which was released in the middle of this week for iPad and iPhone.
As mentioned above, the action is timed to the launch of iOS 8, which created some difficulties for the owners of iPhone and iPad.
As for installing the update requires a lot of memory space, Microsoft invited users to transfer photos and videos to the cloud. Thus, owners of Apple devices can clear the memory to install the update, and Microsoft will increase its user base.
This is a great offer, but it is limited in time. So if you are averse to increase the capacity of your storage in the cloud, before the end of September, switch on automatic backup of photos and videos in the OneDrive app settings on your device.
It should also be noted that despite the fact that this a smart marketing move, the company seeks to attract to its cloud service Apple clients, this offer is also available for Windows users, Windows Phone and Android.
