Microsoft has announced new policies for supporting Office on iOS effective October 14, 2018:

  • Office for iPhone®, iPad®, and iPad Pro™ will be supported on the two most recent versions of iOS. When a new version of iOS is released, Office’s Operating System requirement becomes the then-current two most recent versions: the new version of iOS and the previous version.
  • Effective October 14, 2018, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote is no longer supported for Office app updates on devices running iOS 10 or earlier versions of iOS. In November, Outlook will no longer be supported for updates on devices running iOS 10 or earlier versions of iOS.
  • Users will be able to continue to use the older version of the Office apps and once updated to iOS 11 or above, devices will receive the newest version of Office apps.
  • If no action is taken, Outlook for iOS will eventually stop synchronizing email and calendar data, and all Office apps will not receive feature and security upgrades.
