Microsoft Office for iOS Reportedly Coming in 2013 [Update]
A press release, seen by The Verge, from Microsoft’s Czech Republic team confirms the availability for iOS and Android. “In addition to Windows, Office will be also available on other operating systems, Windows Phone, Windows RT, Mac OS, Android, iOS and Symbian,” says Microsoft, while separately noting that there will also be a new version of Office Web Apps too. Office for iPad has long been rumored to be in the works, offering iOS users a way to access Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents from Apple’s tablet and phone devices.
The press release notes a December launch for businesses with consumers getting sometime after March of 2013. After consulting with a US Microsoft representative, the latter told The Verge nothing had been announced yet.
