Microsoft has recently increased its free storage offer from seven to fifteen gigabytes. Now, the company has rolled out an important update to its free OneDrive client for iPhone and iPad users. Besides the traditional bug fixes and performance improvements, OneDrive now lets iOS users share files via Apple’s AirDrop technology.

Also, it now includes HLS support which lets it adapt to the available bandwidth when video-streaming. Here are all the new features and fixes in version 4.3 of OneDrive for iPhone and iPad users:

• Option to exclude video uploads from Camera Backup
• Improved sharing experience including AirDrop support
• Enhancements to video streaming for smoother playback
• Bug fixes and performance improvements

So, now, you can share your OneDrive photos, videos, documents and other files in your OneDrive folder directly to other iOS devices nearby thanks to the AirDrop wireless sharing technology.

However, AirDrop between iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macs will be possible when iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite launch this Fall. With HLS support for streaming video, iOS users could get all the videos off their devices to free up storage space.
