OneNote for iPhone gets support for Touch ID, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

Microsoft OneNote for iPhone has been updated with support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, along with enhancements to security. These include better password protection, and Touch ID.

Touch ID allows you to unlock items that are password protected with your fingerprint. You can now also create new password protected sections. You can even change or remove the passwords on existing protected sections.

OneNote will now let you insert files from the cloud. While you can choose OneDrive, naturally, you can also add files from your cloud service of choice, such as Dropbox, as long as you have the service's app installed on your device. It's now easier to organize pages, as OneNote now lets you move and reorder pages in a given section.

You can download OneNote for iPhone for free from the App Store right now.

  • I switched from Evernote ... very happy but the only thing bugs me with OneNote is that clipping clip the whole damn page and doesn't let me to cut section I don't need ... i.e.; google ads!
  • Please Apple make Touch ID native on the iPhone, why other developers can do it and you can't, please IOS 9!!!
  • I also switched from Evernote as the mental workflow was hard to manage. I process information better if my notes are in book, tabs and pages. OneNote has been great for Uni. Sent from the iMore App
  • And still no support for inking. :( They updated the Android version to support it, but the iOS and OSX versions still don't have it.
  • I was very surprised and disappointed by this. It's the only thing missing that I really need/want.
  • I've always liked One Note for the ease of use in making new documents at work and then working on them in other settings. Sweet that now I can do it on my new MacBook, too! But I agree with JeepMan that would be nice to be able to scribble on it.
