Mega, the official iOS app of the cloud storage service of the same name (formerly Megaupload), has just received its first ever update, over a couple of months after its release in the App Store.

The first update to Mega introduces two new features, namely, PhotoSync and passcode lock.

As its name suggests, PhotoSync lets you sync your photos onto your Mega account with ease. Specifically, like its corresponding features in Dropbox and SkyDrive, PhotoSync automatically uploads your camera roll to Mega.

Mega’s PhotoSync feature includes additional options for uploading on cellular or Wi-Fi only and for uploading photos in the background when there’s a significant change in your location.

As for passcode lock, like the feature added to BitTorrent Sync late last December, it requires a four-digit passcode to be entered every time the app is launched, thereby providing an additional layer of security.

What’s more, Mega’s passcode lock comes with an option to erase all data and log out of the app after 10 failed passcode attempts.

The new version of Mega also includes various bug fixes and speed improvements.

Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later, Mega is available now in the App Store for free.

Mega offers 50GB of free storage space. To get more space, you can upgrade to Mega Pro via in-app purchase for $10.99 per month or $119.99 per year. Mega Pro gives you 500GB of storage space and 1TB of bandwidth per month.
