Microsoft OneDrive is doubling up free storage for users from 15 GB to 30 GB just months after it had amped it up from 7 to 15 GB. All it’s asking is for you to turn on that Auto Update feature on the camera roll. But you won’t be stuck with it. Once you turn on Auto Update and claim that extra 15 GB, you can turn it off and still keep the gains.

Microsoft has especially extended this quick gesture to iPhone users who enthusiastically upgraded to iOS 8 only to have it hog anywhere between 5-7 GB of phone space for the OS alone. So no more deleting apps and media, reassures Group Program Manager Douglas Pearce on the OneDrive blog.

“We’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones released today and we wanted to get you more storage right away… We think you’ll appreciate having more free storage while setting up your iPhone 6 or upgrading to iOS 8.”

For non-iPhone users, of course, it means more space for more memories. Pearce also let in on the blog that this is a limited-time offer, without specifying the closing date.
