Microsoft Targets iCloud With 30GB of Free OneDrive Storage

415142-microsoft-onedrive-logoForget iCloud. Microsoft wants Apple fans to use OneDrive, and it’s doubling the amount of free storage on iOS in an effort to entice them.

The announcement came Friday evening, as folks were still unboxing their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones, which come in 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB models, but no extra storage option. “We’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones … and we wanted to get you more storage right away,” Douglas Pearce, OneDrive group program manager, wrote in a blog post.

Specifically, OneDrive users will get 30GB of free OneDrive storage: 15GB of base storage and another 15GB for photos pulled from your phone’s camera roll.

It’s not an iOS-specific offering, though. Microsoft also extended its promotion to include anyone who already uses the OneDrive camera roll on Windows Phone,Android, and the Windows desktop OS, as well as existing iPhone users who back up their photos to OneDrive.
