When it comes to cloud computing, Apple and Microsoft have always been leaders.
And while both companies have been working to get their technology on the consumer’s desktop, it’s been a bit of a slow, steady march for both.
While both companies offer cloud services on iOS, the Apple and Windows-based versions of Office are quite different.
The latter offers a more powerful, more modern version of Office, while Office for Mac and Windows offer a more advanced, more traditional version of the same suite.
That has led to some heated debate about whether cloud services will replace Office.
While Apple has long claimed its cloud services are for enterprise and enterprise-only use, Microsoft is pushing to get Office on the same level as its Office 365, its version of Microsoft Office.
As of this week, Microsoft announced it has begun rolling out Office for Android devices to support the cloud service.
That launch will begin in the coming weeks, and Microsoft is also launching Office for iPhone and iPad on July 20.
Microsoft has also begun rolling back the support for Office for Windows Mobile devices in the Windows 10 Creators Update, a move that could hurt the company’s cloud business.
The company is also now rolling out support for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 10 on its own devices.
Microsoft is hoping its cloud business will eventually get enough traction that it will allow Office for iOS to become an official offering on the platform.
At this point, Microsoft’s cloud strategy is focused on making the services available on Windows, Windows Phone, and Xbox, but it’s still working to figure out what the next steps are for its other products.
And, as always, there’s no official word yet on when Office will finally be available on the iOS platform.
The best way to stay up-to-date on Apple’s cloud plans is to visit the company website.
It has a lot of information to offer and you can even learn more about how the company thinks its cloud plans will work.
