Frequently Asked Questions
What are the system requirements for Office for iPad?
An iPad running iOS 7.0 or later.
What is the difference between Office for iPad and Office for PC or Mac?
Office for iPad was designed from the ground up for the touch experience of an Pad and for the productivity
scenarios that an iPad is well suited for. For example, delivering a PowerPoint presentation, reviewing and
annotating a Word document or making changes to a financial analysis in Excel.
Office on a PC and Mac is full featured and enables people to do more complex or more detailed work. When
multitasking is required, or you need to combine information from multiple documents, or you want pixel perfect
precision, then Office on a PC with keyboard, mouse and multiple monitors is the better solution.
