Update to the Minimum iOS System Requirements for Office Apps

Office for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Pro is supported on the two most recent versions of iOS. When a new version of iOS is released, Office’s Operating System requirement becomes the then-current two most recent versions: the new version of iOS and the previous version.

With iOS 12 now generally available, we are updating the minimum system requirements for Office iOS apps from iOS 10 to iOS 11.

How does this affect me?

This will only affect you if you are using Office apps on an Apple or MacIntosh device with operating system software version 10 or lower.

Effective October 14, 2018, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote is no longer supported for Office app updates on devices running iOS 10 or earlier versions of iOS. In November, Outlook will no longer be supported for updates on devices running iOS 10 or earlier versions of iOS.

You will be able to continue to use the older version of the Office apps. Once updated to iOS 11 or above, devices will receive the newest version of Office apps.

If no action is taken, Outlook for iOS will eventually stop synchronizing email and calendar data, and all Office apps will not receive feature and security upgrades.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

Update your device operating system.

*Note: Office apps will continue to work on devices iPad 4th Generation or iPad Mini 1st Generation or older, but the Office apps will no longer be updated.
