Microsoft brings Office to the iPad

Microsoft finally has its Office app, which has been available for Android and iOS for a year, for the Apple iPad available in an optimized form. Individual applications such as Word, Excel, or Powerpoint are now available as iPad-optimized programs. The Office app, which combines it all, was reserved for the world of Android and iPhone.

Mouse and trackpad support

Throughout the past year, Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint have been successively adapted to the new possibilities of the iPad such as the mouse, trackpad and pencil support. Multi-application mode is also supported, allowing multiple documents from the same application to be placed side by side on the screen.

The PDF functions of the new Office application have been improved again. In this way, PDFs can be easily created from various documents and these can also be signed. Also, images can be quickly converted into a PowerPoint file using the iPadOS system function. If you use the Office app on newer iPads with a screen size of 10.2 inches or larger, you need a subscription to Microsoft 365.
