Office for iPad will Launch on March 27th!
Recently Microsoft released a version of Office on the iPhone last year as part of its Office 365 subscription service and the iPad version will also require an Office 365 subscription service. The iPad variant of Office will be similar to the iPhone including that document creation and editing is fully supported for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps. The interface and features are expected to be similar to the existing iPhone version.
This is part of Microsoft’s new CEO Satya Nadella plan of “mobile first, cloud first” strategy.
In addition, Microsoft will update Microsoft Office for Mac in spring 2014.
