The iOS version of the Microsoft OneDrive app updated today to Version 11.6. This latest update added new group options for when sharing files, fixed a bug that was messing with sharing in the iOS Messages app, corrected a UI glitch, and improved the opening of PDF and Office files on iPads.

Here’s the full release notes:

  • 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.
