Microsoft announces new OneDrive widget and home screen for iOS users

Microsoft today announced two new features for OneDrive users on iOS. First, OneDrive for iOS is getting a new home screen that will help you quickly pick up where you left off and easily re-discover memories from the past. Second, OneDrive supports the new Widget feature on iOS 14. Find more details on these features below.

New home screen:

  • For OneDrive personal users the new home experience will feature three main sections: recently accessed files, files downloaded for offline use, and “On This Day” photos, which help you relive memories from years past.
  • For OneDrive work and school users the new home experience will highlight recent files, shared libraries, and offline files.
  • It’s available for all OneDrive accounts including free and paid accounts as well as work, school and home accounts.

OneDrive widget:

  • New OneDrive widget displays your photo memories on this day across previous years.
  • And, if you don’t have any On This Day photos for today, you’ll see your most recent photos that you’ve saved to the cloud.
  • This feature is only available for personal OneDrive accounts and requires iOS 14 plus the latest version of the OneDrive app (build 11.51 or greater) on your phone.
