Microsoft has announced that users of Apple's iPhone as well as its own Windows Phone devices will now be able to take advantage of its SkyDrive app.
SkyDrive is Microsoft's cloud-based storage service for files, documents, photos and videos. Users can retrieve their documents and files stored in SkyDrive on multiple devices.
The firm adopted measures to integrate its SkyDrive service into Windows Phone.
It decided to make the service available to iPhone users as the Windows Phone operating system is not used by everyone who makes use of SkyDrive.
Microsoft said: "We realise that not everyone who relies on SkyDrive for sharing photos or accessing Office documents uses Windows Phone... yet. We have a long history of supporting iPhone customers with built-in support for Hotmail and with apps like Bing, Messenger, OneNote (with SkyDrive sync), and now Skype."
The company announced that the new SkyDrive app for iPhone will be available in 32 languages across the globe.
