Microsoft has posted an update for its SkyDrive cloud storage service on iOS that will add support for Apple's latest hardware releases as well as interface and performance enhancements.
With the 3.0 release of SkyDrive for iOS, users will now be able to install the application on their iPhone 5 handsets and iPad Mini tablets.
Microsoft said that while it has seen strong uptake for SkyDrive on Windows, it is looking to increase the service's reach with other platforms as well.
"With the release of Windows 8 and Windows RT back in October, more and more people every day are using SkyDrive for their most important files through the SkyDrive app, as well as through SkyDrive integration in File Explorer," Microsoft SkyDrive Apps group programme manager Mike Torres wrote in a blog post.
"Of course, there are great SkyDrive experiences for Windows devices, but being the place for all your files means we invest a significant amount of effort ensuring you have a great experience across all the devices you want to use."
In addition to the expanded iPhone and iPad support, Microsoft is adding a number of performance and interface enhancements. IOS users will now be able to download either full resolution photos or smaller-sized images to either iPhones or iPads.
dditionally, the service will add support for image metadata on uploaded images and will improve support for third-party applications.
Microsoft said that the latest version of SkyDrive for iOS can be downloaded through the iTunes App Store.
