OneDrive for iPhone and iPad updated with AirDrop integration and more

Microsoft has released an updated version of its OneDrive app for the iPhone and iPad that adds a few new features to the mix, including integration with Apple's AirDrop support.

This new addition should please many owners of multiple iOS products. Microsoft says the new AirDrop support will allow those folks to "easily share your photos, videos, documents and other files in your OneDrive directly to other iOS devices nearby."

If you have any video clips on your OneDrive announce, playing them on the app should be a better experience as well with this update. Microsoft says, "We added HLS support so the video playback adapts to your available bandwidth. This is particularly cool because it lets you get the videos off your phone, thus freeing up space with a near instantaneous playback experience."

Finally, Microsoft has added the option for the iOS OneDrive app to exclude video uploads to its automatic Camera Backup. This should be good for phone and tablet owners who have a limited data plan. This particular change was made based on feedback from users.

What do you think of these changes for the iOS OneDrive app?
