What you need to know

  • Microsoft OneDrive will soon drop support for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.
  • To continue using the application, users will have to update their devices to iOS or iPadOS 14 or newer.
  • It's standard practice for companies to drop support for older versions of operating systems.

The latest update to OneDrive for iOS includes the standard range of bug fixes and stability improvements. More importantly, its changelog notes that the app will soon drop support for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. Users of the app will have to update their devices to iOS or iPadOS 14 or newer to continue using OneDrive.

Microsoft and other companies normally drop support for older operating systems to help ensure the security, stability, and performance of apps. For example, Microsoft ended iOS 13 support for Microsoft Teams in October 2021.

Here's the complete changelog for the most recent update to OneDrive on iOS and iPadOS:

This update contains bug fixes and stability improvements.We would like to let our users know that we are planning on dropping support for iOS and iPadOS 13 soon. OneDrive will continue to support the current version of iOS/iPadOS (15) and the one immediately before that, iOS/iPadOS 14.

Apple rolled out iOS 15 last year and iOS 14 shipped in fall 2020, so most devices should be on iOS 14 or newer by now.
