After years of expectation, Microsoft planned to launch Office for iPad on March 27 at an event in San Francisco.
However, it will come with a catch. The iPad version of Microsoft Office will require an Office 365 subscription to edit documents, similar to the iPhone adaptation which was released last June. Users could create and edit the fully supported Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps which used a similar interface and features to the iPhone version.
Microsoft’s new CEO Saya Nadella was expected to discuss the computer software maker’s “mobile first, cloud first strategy”, reported The Verge.
OneNote Office app for the Mac and Office Online were recently released with further plans to unveil Windows Phone 8.1 and future plans for Windows 9 at the Build developer conference on April 2.
