Read files offline in OneDrive for iOS

Mark files "offline" in OneDrive for iOS to read them anytime, even when you aren't connected to the Internet. Online edits made to the files sync the next time your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch connects to the Web, so you get the latest version of the file.

Note: Files marked offline are read-only - you can edit the file only when you're online. If you edit the file offline, it saves as a new file, and does not change the original OneDrive file.
