Apple iPad 3

Microsoft Office for iPad finally arrives, £80 annually for the full shebang

Phew, it’s only been – what? – four years since the late Steve Jobs unveiled the first-generation iPad, so one could hardly accuse Microsoft of rushing out its Office for iPad suite.

Microsoft Office for iPad arrives in three standalone apps, but to do anything other than view documents, you’ll need an Office 365 subscription, and it ain’t cheap.

That of course means update time, as iOS 7.1 has finally been unleashed upon the iMasses. Let’s take a look at some of the key iOS 7.1 features.

Microsoft Office for iPad to arrive before new Windows version?

Microsoft Office for iPad to arrive before new Windows version?

Lewis Curdie  Feb. 15 at 14:00

The iPad is widely credited with kickstarting the whole tablet craze, and obviously it makes perfect sense that in the four years since its release, we haven’t seen an official Microsoft Office app. Smooth.

We’re told that it’s still very much in the works, but the surprising thing here is that Microsoft Office for iPad will supposedly touch down before the new touch-focused version for Windows.

iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer release

iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer release

iOS 7 celebrates its two-month anniversary this week, and in its relatively short existence we’ve had a handful of minor updates in the form of iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, and most recently 7.0.4.

The next “major” version (if we can call it that) is iOS 7.1, and with the beta version now being served to developers, it’s probably safe to say it’ll hit compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touches everywhere pretty soon.

We’ve been hearing a fair bit about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 12.2 plans over the past few days, but here we turn our attention back to the South Koreans’ best mates (ahem), California’s Apple.

A larger iPad – or “iPad Maxi” – has been rumoured for some time now, and again we’re told that Apple is prepping a 12.9in version of the Tablet That Started it All.

Microsoft Office for iPad confirmed, but don’t hold your breath

Microsoft Office for iPad confirmed, but don’t hold your breath

It’s incredible to think that the iPad is now three-and-a-half years old, and still there’s no Microsoft Office app. All those millions of potential customers, but… nope, no dice.

Microsoft Office for the iPad has again been confirmed, but it sounds like it might still be some way off.

Angry Birds Star Wars II iOS review

There’s no getting past it; the latest three Star Wars films are terrible. Ok, Episode III is fine, but the other two are utter gash. Indeed, I was reading about "Star Wars Machete Order" the other day, in which some guy proposes watching IV, V, II, III then VI, and missing Episode I entirely. Interesting.

Anyway! My rant is slightly on topic. What we have here is a game based on the first three episodes of the franchise, namely Angry Birds Star Wars II. Thankfully, it’s far more enjoyable than the source material.

Infinity Blade III touches down, fully optimised for your 64-bit A7 processor

It’s been a hell of a week for games. GTA V finally arrived after a five-year wait, while smartphones and tablets have, er, Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 (App Store, Google Play; I’ll get to that in words tomorrow, hopefully).

There’s more good news for iDevice owners with the arrival of Infinity Blade III (sah-weet), and indeed iPhone 5S owners will get the best from it with their 64-bit A7 processors. Lovely.

iOS 7: what’s new?

iOS 7: what’s new?

I promised to scribble my first impressions of iOS 7 earlier this morning, and here I am delivering on said promise with a thousand-word monstrosity of an essay. #hero

Jan has already given the game away by insisting that you install iOS 7 now (“do it!!!” he says, in his best German supervillain accent), and I have to concur: it’s pretty great like.

Trade in your iPad against a Microsoft Surface; HTC guarantees* '0 or more' for your iPhone

Trade-in programs are nothing new, obviously, but both Microsoft and HTC are specifically targeting iDevice owners with their latest exchange campaigns.

Microsoft wants iPad owners to switch to the Surface (too funny), while HTC is guaranteeing* (*terms and conditions apply) at least $150 for your old iPhone.
