Microsoft Launches OneDrive For Business, Formerly SkyDrive Pro, With New Design
A week after officially rebranding SkyDrive as OneDrive, Microsoft has updated the official iOS app of its popular cloud storage service’s business edition to reflect the name change and give the app an iOS 7 makeover to boot.
Last week, SkyDrive was officially renamed OneDrive in line with Microsoft’s agreement with a court ruling made in favor of the “Sky” trademark of British TV broadcaster BSkyB. Microsoft then began putting the rebranding into effect across its SkyDrive portfolio, including its official SkyDrive app for iOS, which was updated accordingly.
Now, SkyDrive Pro, the business-oriented version of the SkyDrive app, has been updated as well. As a result, SkyDrive Pro is now officially called OneDrive for Business.
In addition, the new OneDrive for Business app features a new design for iOS 7 and several enhancements, including an improved login experience and support for additional types of authentication.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, OneDrive for Business (formerly SkyDrive Pro) is available now in the App Store for free.
OneDrive for Business requires a SharePoint Online or qualifying Office 365 business subscription. If you wish to use OneDrive for your personal, non-business files only, the regular OneDrive app should suffice.
