Microsoft is taking a new approach to Office on mobile, starting with a unified app that brings Word, Excel, and PowerPoint together for the first time. You can download and use it for free today on iPhone.
Just as expected, the Microsoft Office 365 suite is now available to download from the Mac App Store.
The bundle includes six apps — including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint — each of which can also be downloaded individually. They are free to obtain, but you’ll need a subscription to unlock even basic features in most of them.
Microsoft Office 365 is nearing its Mac App Store debut.
Apple has already begun promoting the suite, which includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, in several countries around the world, while Microsoft has published a new support document that explains how to activate Office from the Mac App Store.
Microsoft has confirmed plans to discontinue its Office Sway app for iOS.
The service will no longer work on iPhone and iPad as of December 17, 2018. Sway will be removed from the App Store two months earlier. You will still be able to access the service through your web browser, however.
