The story begun back in October, last year, when the former CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer said, that the company was working on a way to support the Microsoft Office suite on the Apple iPad. And, since it became quite a wait! Now, Microsoft is likely to launch the Office Suite for the tab by July, this year.
According to The Verge, development on Office for iPad has continued and Microsoft has reportedly speed up the process aiming to bring it in the market by July-end. It is also anticipated that Office for iPad may release before the Microsoft’s first version of touch-centric Office Suite for the Windows 8. Rumours had that the two giants were working on Office for Apple iPhone and iPad. However, Microsoft did unveil the Suite, though, it was only for the iPhone.
Apple appears to be tight lipped but the company aware of Microsoft’s development of Office for iPad, with the purpose to bring it to market fairly soon. It is believed that the Microsoft Office Suite for Apple iPad will be more comprehensive than the iPhone. On iPhone, the Office requires an Office 365 subscription to run, and yet not all of its apps are completely accessible.
