One of Microsoft’s most important divisions is its Office department for productivity tools, and within that, iOS has become a key part of the Redmond-based company’s playbook. It’s kept its iOS apps well up-to-date, and it’s not about to buck that trend, providing today a couple Microsoft Office iOS updates bringing minor (but welcome) improvements to the iOS versions of PowerPoint, Excel, and Word.
The changelogs for all three are below – the updates are fairly minor and self-explanatory, though several of the new features have seen lots of support for their addition as of late. For Word, Microsoft says you can now “create great looking Word documents more quickly by using one of the templates.” For Excel, Add-ins are new, allowing users to “add functionality to Excel that enhance [their] spreadsheets and help increase [their] productivity.” For PowerPoint, you can now change slide layout – “make your content pop by changing layout of your slide.” You can also insert photos and videos straight from the camera now.
All the updates are rolling out across the App Store now; go get the updates from there if you haven’t already! Let us know what you think after you’ve downloaded the updated versions.
