Microsoft has finally released a single Office application for Apple iPad tablets.
Since the beginning of 2020, Microsoft has given iPhone users the opportunity to have a single Office application for all MS Office applications: Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote. But iPad users have been allowed to use standalone applications instead of consolidating for a year, although AppleInsider now reports that Microsoft has finally taken a single Office app to the iPad as well.
The iPad Unified Office is now available in the App Store. On the home screen of the Office app, users can choose between different Office applications and easily create a Word document, Excel spreadsheet and more. On their iPad without having to search for separate apps on your device one by one.
Importantly, although the Office application is free to download, an Office 365 subscription is required to take advantage of document sharing features.
Standalone Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps are still available in the iPad App Store. There is no information yet on whether Microsoft plans to remove them, but all of their features are also available in the federated Office application.
