Microsoft adding OneDrive support to Apple's iOS 11 Files app

The feature will come with the iOS 11 update, Apple executives announced at a conference on Monday.

"Apple reinvented portable music with iPod and now HomePod will reinvent how we enjoy music wirelessly throughout our homes", said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Apple said that watch wearers will be able to link their devices with the gym equipment through NFC.

"Business Chat is a powerful new way for businesses to connect with customers directly from within Messages", Apple's developer site says.

The news regarding the latest iPad Pro comes with glad tidings, as the latest model will be replacing the 9.7-inch model with a 10.5-inch version. Most of the news focused on the coming updates for its various operating systems, but CEO Tim Cook also introduced some new hardware.

Apple also made a significant update to its iPad Pro range, with a new 10.5-inch model. He first raised his veil on his MacBook Pro and iMac which were refreshed with faster processors (Kaby Lake) before presenting the most badass Mac ever seen, the iMac Pro.

The "Do Not Disturb While Driving", which is expected to roll out later this year, will block any messages from the iPhone or iPad with an updated iOS 11.

For now, we may not know just how Apple plans on using its AR and VR tech in the future, but there's only so much you can do with inserting fancy images in real-life clicks.

The pro level camera features will allow for looping videos with new Loop and Bounce effects in Live Photos.

Apple Pay will become more useful by adding the option to make and receive payments to or from friends.

In Apple Maps, users will find detailed maps of 30 airports around the world, from Amsterdam to Vancouver.

Called, imaginatively, Do Not Disturb While Driving, the function can detect when you are driving and will automatically silence notifications and keep the screen switched off.

"OneDrive integration with the Files app will make it easier for you to access your content from any Apple device and will provide a better file management experience on iOS for your personal and work OneDrive and SharePoint sites", explained the Office team yesterday.
