Microsoft Office for iOS updated with drag & drop support, other improvements
OneDrive is not the only app that received a major update on iOS platform. Microsoft announced a couple of new features and improvements for the Office apps as well, which are already available via App Store.

Just like OneDrive, Office 365 subscribers on iPad and iPhone will be able to easily drag and drop content into documents, presentations, and spreadsheets from other Office apps (or OneDrive).

Basically, all Office apps now feature drag & drop ability enabling users to move files to and from OneDrive and other sources, including SharePoint or iMessage.

But that's not all, as Microsoft announced that it has added co-authoring in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for iOS. The new feature will allow you to see who else is working with you in a document, as well as see where they're working and view the changes made.

According to Microsoft, the updates for Office and OneDrive announced earlier today are already available to all Office 365 subscribers, so make sure to download the latest versions via App Store.
