Microsoft has pushed out updates for its OneNote client on both iPhone and iPad, adding support for new features added in iOS 8 and a design that’s optimized for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Users can now password protect sections of documents directly from mobile devices (a feature that used to require a Windows PC). Those with an iPhone 5s or newer will also find that they can now unlock password-protected sections of documents using Touch ID. That feature isn’t mentioned in the iPad change log, so users on the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 might need to wait for a future update to enable it.

iCloud Drive support is now present as well, allowing users to access files stored in Apple’s storage solution or in other third-party apps that have registered as document servers. Other additions, such as the ability to rearrange pages in the iPhone version or open notebooks stored on a self-hosted SharePoint Server round out the update’s feature set.

You can grab the iPhone or iPad version of OneNote for free on the App Store. Some features require an Office 365 subscription.
