Microsoft Office for iOS updated with drag & drop support, other improvements

Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and One Drive are all gaining new features, including drag and drop support and more. Check out the full changelog below. You can now co-author any Word, PowerPoint and Excel document on Mac or iOS, letting you work on stuff with co-creators. This allows you to know who else is working with you in a document, see where they're working, and view changes automatically within seconds.

Although multi-user collaboration has been available on Office Online as well as the Mac and PC versions of Office for some time, it's finally making its way to iOS apps.

Additional file and folder actions are available via the share sheet. Now it's easier than ever to organize and rearrange your files. In addition, the company has made AutoSave available for 365 subscribers who use OneDrive or SharePoint to save their files.

Microsoft has improved the layout of OneDrive app for iPad and iPhone and added a bunch of new features which will make sharing and moving files from the cloud storage solution to other Office 365 apps and Apple's Files app a lot more seamless. You can also tag and favorite your OneDrive and SharePoint files from within the Files app.

Other highlights in OneDrive 10.1 for iOS include previews for over 130 file types, Microsoft Flow integration for work and school accounts, landscape support and other UI fixes on the iPhone X.
