Popular cloud storage service Dropbox on Monday updated its official iOS application with support for Touch ID secure logins, as well as native compatibility with the larger displays of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Dropbox 3.5 is now available as a free download from the iOS App Store. After users update, they can open the application's settings, turn on passcode, and then flip the switch to enable Touch ID.

After enabling passcode and Touch ID, users will be prompted to place their fingertip on their iPhone's home button every time they wish to reopen the application.

Dropbox 3.5 now also supports the 4.7-inch screen of the iPhone 6, and the 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 6 Plus. The update also adds a fix for previewing RTF files on iOS 8, and includes general stability and performance improvements.

The basic Dropbox service, which comes with 5 gigabytes of storage, is free, and in-app purchases for Dropbox Pro with 1 terabyte of capacity are available for $99.99 per year, or $25.99 for three months.
