With the new OneDrive for Business for Mac, users will be able to do the same as well as access and use files in their OneDrive through the Mac Finder and manage and sync files in the same way they would with the existing application for Windows. The OneDrive for Business client for Mac also allows users to access and take their OneDrive for Business files offline so users can access downloaded files without having to have access to an Internet connection. However, the real draw is that the iOS app for mobile devices lets users access both their OneDrive for Business and OneDrive consumer accounts from the same app.
