Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app is one of the most widely used apps out there for backing up photos to the company’s cloud servers. Today, an updated version of the app for iOS has been released. The new Cloud Drive Photos iOS app brings native support for iPads as well as support for video uploading. Amazon initially launched this feature on Android over a year and a half ago, iOS users have certainly been waiting for a long time to be allowed to upload their videos to Amazon’s Cloud Drive Photos service.

Native support for the iPad means that both the full-fledged tablet and the iPad mini are now natively compatible with the app, users won’t have to run it in 2x magnified mode. Videos of up to 20 minutes in length can be uploaded, file size is limited to 2GB. While that might not seem much if you are looking to store professional videos in the cloud, the time and size limit is enough to accommodate most personal videos. The app also has an auto-upload feature, which when turned on, will upload the existing content in camera roll to the cloud. The company offers 5GB of free cloud storage to new users, the app itself is available as a free download from the App Store.
