How to get Microsoft Office for iPad and iPhone

The Microsoft Office apps are free to download from the App Store (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook) to any iPhone or iPad user running iOS 12 or later. If you run a search in the App Store rather than using the links above, make sure you get versions with Microsoft Corporation listed as the developer, just so you don't accidentally download an Office clone.

You can create, edit, view and print documents, presentations and spreadsheets in the Office apps for free, but to do so you will need to sign in. Luckily it is possible to sign up for free, you just need to create a Microsoft ID by logging on with your email address and password. You don't need to have an Office 365 subscription, but you will need to register for this free account if you want to be able to create and edit documents.

How to get Microsoft Office for iPad Pro

The problem arises if you have an iPad Pro or the new iPad 10.2in (2019), because Microsoft only offers Word, Excel and PowerPoint (and Outlook) for free on devices that are less than 10.1in. Which basically rules out any iPad Pro (unless you have one of the older models with a 9.7in display). We have an article that discusses how to get Office on iPad Pro for free here.

Because of this you need to have a subscription to Office 365 if you want to use the Office apps on an iPad Pro. Microsoft seems to believe that the iPad Pro is only a professional device, and the inexpensive iPad 10.2in (2019) model suffers from that larger display.
