Microsoft SkyDrive iOS Update

Microsoft’s (MSFT) SkyDrive application for iOS hasn’t been updated since June of last year. The company has been at odds with Apple (AAPL) over a revenue sharing deal, however it appears the two sides have reached an agreement. Microsoft announced on Wednesday that an updated version of its SkyDrive app is now available for download in Apple’s App Store. The latest version adds support for the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, among other improvements, while also allowing users to download full-resolution photos to an Apple device. A Microsoft spokesperson revealed to The Verge that the company “worked with Apple to create a solution that benefited our mutual customers,” and said that the app “is slightly different than other SkyDrive apps in that people interested in buying additional storage will do so via the web versus in the app.”
