The Microsoft SkyDrive app has finally been updated to version 3.0, ten months and two days after its last update, bringing support for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. Other enhancements include letting users download their photos in their full resolution, better support for SkyDrive-connected apps for uploading and opening files, and bug fixes.
The update to SkyDrive was delayed almost a year while Apple and Microsoft argued over Apple’s cut of in-app purchases. Apple demands a 30% cut for anything sold in the App Store, and Microsoft was attempting to get a better deal. SkyDrive users can purchase a subscription for more storage on the web, but Microsoft does not offer the option to pay through its iOS app due to Apple’s policies. It is likely that Microsoft ultimately relented in order to get their app updated to support the iPhone 5.
