Microsoft has just launched its OneDrive for Business cloud storage service for Mac desktops, and integrated it into the OneDrive app for iOS.

The latest update to OneDrive’s iOS app lets users access their OneDrive for Business accounts without the need for a separate app. Both services were previously integrated into a single app on Android last August.

While users can now access their work and personal storage from the same app, IT administrators can still manage and secure OneDrive for Business files as before from Office 365.

OneDrive for Business is also making its debut on OS X today, in the form of a sync client available as a public preview from the Microsoft Download Center.

Users can manage and sync files with the service using Finder, as they would with any other system folder.

Microsoft says that more features, including new auditing, reporting and device management tools for admins, are coming soon. In addition, the company aims to consolidate sync clients for OneDrive and OneDrive for Business on Windows, Mac and the Web in the near future.
