Microsoft’s Office app now supports Apple iPadOS

San Francisco – Microsoft upgraded its unified Office mobile app with support for iPadOS, bringing the experience of Word, Excel and PowerPoint to Apple’s tablet platform. New app combines Word, Excel and PowerPoint into a single application, and was originally launched for iOS and Android back in 2019, The Verge reported. Microsoft always made improvements but always ran in a windowed mode instead of a fully optimized iPad app. It also houses some useful tools designed primarily for mobile tasks such as having the ability to quickly create PDFs or sign documents, converting images to text and tables, and more quick actions. The company has been simplifying its mobile Office offerings into this single app, but standalone apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are still available and updated regularly. Microsoft has added many iPad-specific features to its Office apps, including mouse and trackpad support recently, the report said. Office for iPad is free to use for iPad Air, iPad and iPad mini users, but requires a Microsoft 365 subscription to make full use of all features.
