Microsoft’s OneDrive app for iOS has received a new update. The update brings plenty of bug fixes and performance improvements, it also brings an important new feature and that is an improved shared view. Aside from that, the update takes the app to Version 11.6.

Improved shared view is basically the same old shared view, but now you have new groupings, taking advantage of which you will be able to know who shared a document and when they shared it. You can see the full official changelog below.


  • The shared view got even better now with new groupings for who shared documents to you and when they were shared. Getting back to your collaborative work is a breeze when you can easily organize your shared view!

  • iOS 13 users sharing OneDrive files – via the Messages app – may have noticed the app having a rough time. We sent it to OS school and it came back a lean, mean, messaging machine.

  • Some iPad users were experiencing an unresponsive OneDrive when coming back to the app – black screen, app crashes, the works. This has been fixed and the app will work as expected.

  • Users doing a very specific set of actions in a shared library would see the top bar selfishly cover the Shared Library icon. Boundaries have been restored for these components and this has been fixed.

  • We’ve fixed an issue with our multi window experience on iPad preventing some PDFs and Office files from being able to open in a new window. This has been fixed and all your PDFs, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files should now successfully open in a new window.

  • This wouldn’t be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please shake your device and tap “Report a Problem.”

Microsoft recently added support for multiple windows on the iPad. You can tap the “…” button and choose “Open in New Windows” to open a PDF or a document in a new window. You can also use the drag and drop gesture to open the document in a new window.
