This weekend is all about the iPhone. but we do have a little bit of iPad news to share with you. With the iPad Pro launch now next on Apple’s slate of upcoming new products, Ars Technica has learned that Microsoft will require iPad Pro users to have an Office 365 subscription if they want to to be able to view and edit documents in Microsoft’s suite of Office apps.

The news might strike some as curious given that Microsoft lets iPhone and current iPad users view and edit Microsoft Word/Excel/PowerPoint documents free of charge. Explaining why the iPad Pro warrants special treatment, Microsoft told Ars that the iPad Pro, on account of its 12.9-inch display, is not considered a “true mobile device.”

As it turns out, the internal threshold Microsoft came up with to determine if a device can enjoy free access to Office is 10.1 inches, effectively requiring iPad Pro users to sign up for an Office 365 subscription if they want to use Microsoft’s suite of productivity software.

The cheapest Office 365 subscription is for a single user license that will set you back about $69.99. The subscription, though, isn’t too shabby and includes access to Micrsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher and Access on one PC and on one tablet or smartphone. The subscription also comes with 1 TB of cloud storage and 60 minutes of calling via Skype. A pricier Office 365 Home subscription costs $99 and will support upwards of 5 PCs and 5 tablets or smartphones.

We don’t have firm release date for the iPad Pro just yet, but it’s a safe bet that it’ll launch sometime in November before Black Friday. The base model (32GB of storage and Wi-Fi only) will retail for $799, with an accompanying Apple Pencil to be sold separately for $99.

You also get 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage for your photos, videos and documents, plus 60 minutes of Skype calls per month and tech support from Microsoft-trained experts at no extra charge.

The powerful software in Microsoft Office 2013 remains in Microsoft Office 2016, including features and shortcuts for the things you do most often, like creating professional-looking presentations, working on spreadsheets, or word processing.

Everything we know about the next version of Office

Windows 10 has and continues to grab a huge deal of attention, generating a growing media interest, particularly since this is a vital operating system to get right for Redmond given the (relative) failure of Windows 8 (and RT ) and the timid reception for Windows 8.1 .

However, let's not forget that Microsoft has another major cash cow, Office, which has been gradually transformed from a Windows-centric productivity suite of five core products into a vibrant ecosystem of applications, many of them web-based (welcome to the world of SaaS).

In Microsoft's own words, this time around, the company has reimagined the traditional Office experience for a mobile-first, cloud-first world – one where a client-centric Office 2016 is expected to play an increasingly lesser role compared to Office 365 and Office 2013 .

Cut to the chase

What is it? It is the new version of Office, the first one that is designed and built from the ground-up for mobile and cloud.

When will it release? Office 2016 has been launched on September 22.

What will it cost? The suite will be free for consumers on mobile devices and smaller tablets (with limitations, mind you), and probably as cheap as £95 (around $145, AU$185) for a likely "Office Home & Student 2016" edition, though the RRP of the 2013 version of this flavour is £110 (around $165, AU$215), with the subscription version of the suite (Office 365 Personal) running to £60 (or $70, which is around AU$90) per year.

What's the latest?

Since the launch of Office 2016 (the one at the time of publishing is 16.0.4229.1021) on Windows Preview earlier this year, more than one million customers have used it across both Windows and Mac platforms according to Microsoft and that has been followed by a number of updates including:

  • Real Time Presence in word
  • Simplified file sharing
  • Insights (powered by Bing) in Office
  • Version History improvements
  • Improved grammar checker
  • Improved Power Pivot improvements

It will still be best suited to a PC with a keyboard and mouse, a setup that Microsoft seems to believe is the best way to achieve optimal productivity.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has previously shown off touch and mobile optimised versions of Word and PowerPoint on Windows 10, both of them on Lumia smartphones and part of a new offering called "Office for Windows 10" (see the above and below video clips).

More recently, we got the chance to go hands-on with the Office for Windows 10 apps, which have seen changes in the aesthetics department of course, having been given the new universal app styling you'll be familiar with for Windows 10 apps. And naturally, there's a touch-centric UI that will look familiar to iPad users.

In the Word app, for example, there are finger-friendly cursor controls for easy text selection and copy/pasting, plus tapping on a spelling mistake brings up a touch menu of possible replacement words. There's also a new Bing-powered feature for Word called Insights, and this looks up background information, websites and news stories for selected words. Track changes, comments and co-editing are available too, but not every layout tool is present in this Word app.

Excel has benefited from a considerable makeover, and additions including snap functions and smart scrolling which make tapping in your spreadsheet data an easier process. It has the same touch-friendly interface, but it's not as stripped down as with Word, and it boasts a status bar that lets you switch between sheets in your workbook and view the results of common formulas for selected cells.

PowerPoint has a useful range of editing tools, but the preview version we played with had weaknesses in terms of supported file formats, and the Presenter View not being as useful as we'd hoped (it isn't really full-screen, for starters, with the title bar at the top always being present, and the Windows taskbar eating up display real-estate, too).

Overall, at this point the Office for Windows 10 apps look to offer a reasonable selection of features with a nice touch-friendly interface, but that UI takes up too much of the screen in landscape mode.

Office for Windows 10 will be released in two flavours; one for smaller 8-inch or less tablets and smartphones, and the other for larger tablets, hybrids with touchscreens and the like. These two versions are built by the same team and offer similar functionality, and are basically a matter of tuning the UI to complement the dimensions of each device. Broadly speaking, the features will also be the same across different platforms too, whether you're running on Android, iOS or Windows.

Microsoft has said that Office for Windows will be limited to four apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote), because those are the most essential apps which the company wanted to prioritise, and maximise the quality of. Redmond's Richard Ellis, director for Office in the UK, recently told us: "When the need for other apps is known to us by consumers, we will listen and make plans to develop further apps for Office for Windows."

We've reached out to Microsoft to get more clarity on exactly what the deal is with these apps in terms of pricing – it seems licensing fees will apply for business usage, though it's not exactly clear how that will work at this point.

Microsoft has, however, just announced that you will require an Office 365 subscription to be able to edit (and not just view) with these touch-friendly apps on Windows 10 desktops and larger tablets.

If you have a device sized 10.1-inch or less, viewing and most editing functions (not all of them, though) will be free for non-commercial use. The OneNote app will allow editing for free, though, across all devices (and it will come pre-installed with Windows 10). These apps have just had the "preview" label dropped, as they will be released with Windows 10 at the end of July .
