Microsoft Office Comes for iPhone Coming Soon

Microsoft's Office comes for iPad, iPhone, and Android is a reality. Although Office Mobile has been supposed and reportedly covered in the wild, Microsoft has remained determinedly quiet about its plans for the product. The Verge has well-read through several sources close to Microsoft's plans that the company will launch Microsoft Office versions for Android and iOS in early on 2013.

The company isn’t creation an iPad version, though, nor is it offering the app on Android devices.

Microsoft Corporation is trying to make its $100-a-year Office subscription more compelling, without removing an improvement that tablet computers running Microsoft’s Windows system now have — the ability to run popular Office programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Microsoft Office Mobile for iPhone is accessible free through Apple's app store, but an Office 365 subscription is required to make use of it. That subscription lets you use Office on up to five Mac and Windows computers for the annual fee. A subscription can be more expensive than buying the package complete for just one or two computers, but the iPhone version won't be sold individually for those who resist the recurring fee.

Businesses rely on Microsoft Office. Consumers rely on Microsoft Office. By offering Office Mobile for iPhone, Microsoft Corporation is pulling the rug out from under its rivals. It’s also adding more value to Office 365, and it’s ensuring that Office remains the de facto standard efficiency suite—whether businesses and consumers select Windows or not.
