To save documents to iCloud, you must be using Apple’s new iCloud Drive feature, which is available in iOS 8 or later. With iCloud Drive, you can store all your presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and any other kind of document to iCloud. Documents stored in iCloud Drive are kept up to date across all of your devices, and you can access them from your iOS device, Mac, or PC.
You can also begin saving documents to Box with the latest Microsoft Office 1.6 for iOS update. The new integration allows users to open, edit, and save documents back to Box from directly within Office. These integrations also work in conjunction to Box’s existing Office 365 integration for the desktop, and the recently announced Microsoft Outlook for iOS.
After years of development, Microsoft released Microsoft Word for iPad, Microsoft Excel for iPad, and Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad in March 2014 of last year. The Office suite arrived for iPhone in November.
In October, the company announced that the next version of Office for Mac will arrive in the second half of 2015. This will include new versions of Word for Mac, Excel for Mac, PowerPoint for Mac, and OneNote for Mac.
Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint are free downloads on the App Store. To maximize the Office experience on your iPad or iPhone, you must purchase an Office 365 subscription. These are available for as little as $6.99 per month (or $69.99 per year), and include 1TB of storage on Microsoft’s OneDrive.
