    i'm really considering into buying an ipad pro 9.7, but one thing keep stuck in my consideration.. do we need to get 365 subscription to use basic stuff microsoft office (like create & edit document) in ipad pro 9.7?

    because official microsoft website & app store both said that: microsoft office is free to use for basic task (create&edit docs) in ipad, but for ipad Pro you need get 365 subscription for even basic task like create & edit doc, otherwise you just can view the docs..

    here what microsoft website said:
    "A qualifying Office 365 subscription is required to use premium features on the iPad®. A qualifying Office 365 subscription is required to create and edit documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the iPad Pro®."
    and here what app store said:
    "Read Word documents on iPad Pro for free. To create and edit docs, you need a qualifying Office 365 subscription."

    I'd really appreciate for the feedback.. thankyou..

    I would not pay for a sub for a MS product, but that's just me. I personally feel like many businesses are taking advantage, and that it's totally unnecessary to pay for a sub to use software.

    See if this article here at iMore can help offer some alternatives. https://www.imore.com/best-iphone-ap...crosoft-office
