According to sources of The Daily, Microsoft is working on Office suite for Apple’s iPad. It is expected that Microsoft will have its Office suite as single big exclusive app for its Windows 8 tablets that will release later next year. If these reports are true, then Microsoft may have tough time in handling iPad platform.
According to sources, the tech giant is actively working on adapting its popular software suite for Apple’s tablet. With the iPad making up over 80 percent of the tablet market and millions of people worldwide using Office, that could mean big bucks for the tech giant based in Redmond, Wash.
In addition to an iPad-ready version, a new edition of Office is expected for OS X Lion sometime next year.

Windows, too, is due for an update, with Office 2012 currently in beta form.
