After the update, the Office apps will have full support for Apple’s Magic Keyboard with a built-in trackpad. The apps can also be used in combination with a separate mouse.

Word, Excel and PowerPoint get a new start screen and a new ribbon menu on the iPad. The graphics changes are in line with the Fluent UI tweaks that the company is making to its Microsoft 365 software.
