Microsoft's Office app for iOS is now up to v2.46, with support for iPadOS, bringing the unified Office experience of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to Apple's tablet ecosystem.
The changelog reads:
"Office is now available on iPad: We're combining the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps you know into a single, iPadOS-optimized app. Plus, you’ll see additional tools to keep you more productive than ever. For example, you’ll be able to quickly create and sign PDFs, and transform pictures into documents."
Word, Excel, and PowerPoint have been available individually for five years (as on Android), but this is the new 'unified' Office application that brings office code, cloud sync and camera functions together in one place.
Office for iPadOS is free to use for iPad Air, iPad, and iPad mini users, but needs an Microsoft 365 subscription to make full use of all features. For iPad Pro users, with a larger than 10" display, a Microsoft 365 subscription is needed to edit or create documents.
As ever, some screenshot proof of the new version in action. With a Bluetooth keyboard connected, it's all rather swish:
