OneDrive, Microsoft’s answer to Cloud storage services such as Google Drive and iCloud, is offering a tantalising amount of storage space to iphone users as an attempt to sway them from Apple’s clutches.
A limited time offer exclusively for iPhone users offers up to 30GB of storage, which seems huge when compared to Dropbox’s 2GB of free space, Box’s 10GB and Apple’s own iCloud Drive which offers 5GB of storage. It even trump’s Google Drive’s 15GB.

microsoft pitched the offer directly to iPhone users, saying in their blog “For those getting ready to install iOS 8, this means you won’t have to delete a bunch of photos or apps to make room for the upgrade.” offering the free space so iPhone users won’t have to make tough decisions to free up space for the huge iOS 8 update.
Microsoft are feeling a bit cheeky, highlighting their announcement of the service coinciding with the release of the iPhone 6, and also lampooning the low storage space of the standard iPhone 6 models sold at the lowest price
“While it might seem strange to announce new features on a Friday evening, we’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones released today [Friday 19 September] and we wanted to get you more storage right away.”
However, it’s not just iPhone users who can benefit from the extra storage. Log into OneDrive from thee Windows Phone app, Android app, or the desktop PC Windows app, and you’ll find that the extra 15GB has been added to your account. Make sure to have the auto-upload feature enabled.
If you’re on the way to getting your photo collection stored up in the cloud, or you’re an iPhone user and you just can’t decide what to delete from your iphone to make room for that big fat iOS 8 update, then head over to OneDrive and get hold of your complimentary, limited time only, bonus storage space.
