Microsoft Office 365 Editing Feature Not Free For iPad Pro Users

In case you have missed this little slip, it has come to light that advanced features of the Microsoft Office 365 would be chargeable on the Apple iPad Pro. This means users would have to shell out extra monies to use advanced features like editing on the iPad Pro. Note that these facilities are absolutely free on the Apple iPad. Prospective buyers should keep this in mind while purchasing the latest iPad Pro.

Microsoft Office 365 Editing Feature Would Not be Free for iPad Pro UsersThis is not particularly surprising as Microsoft had announced way back in March 2015 that any device with a display of more than 10.1 inches would need an Office 365 subscription to use it.

However, Apple’s iPad Pro is the first device running on iOS that will have to pay to use the editing feature on the Office 365 app. It would cost around $ 6.99 per month to get the subscription.

Microsoft first introduced Office for iPad in 2014. As soon as it was released, it became one of the top apps that could be downloaded for free. A subscription was required to edit and use advanced features on the app when it was first introduced. The company did away with these charges in the latter part of 2014, making the editing feature free to use.

Now, the company has hinted at a subscription for devices with bigger screen sizes. Office 365 is an extremely popular app used by more than a billion people, which helps Microsoft rake in a decent sum of money. Microsoft works really hard on this product to make it better and more productive with new features each time.

Recently, the company released Office 2016 for Windows and Mac that comes with several additional features including a black theme, Tell Me Assistant and the feature of co-authoring posts.

A Teardown Review of the iPad Mini 4

iPad Mini 4 vs iPad Air 2When Apple launched the iPad Mini 4, they claimed it was similar to the iPad Air 2 in terms of hardware specifications. iFixit has cracked open the new kid on the block to reveal their similarities in terms of features and design. From the features suggested on the apple website, one could easily give it to the iPad Mini 4 that it’s a smaller version of the iPad Air 2. Lets look at the similarities they enjoy according to iFixit.

Measurements of the iPad Mini 4 are pretty close to the iPad Air 2. Both the devices are really thin at 6.1mm. At the same time, iFixit has pointed out that the iPad Mini 4 also comes with the full laminated screen technology,  much like the iPad Air 2.

The website also suggests that the Touch ID cable of the iPad Mini 4 is now directly integrated into the display cable, which was also brought into the iPad Air 2. Note that this makes it extremely hard to repair the display panel if needed.

iPad Mini 4 has a single cell battery, which makes it easier to take it out when required. Not only that, the iFixit review suggests the battery is thinner and smaller than that of the iPad Mini 3. The Apple website says iPad Mini 4 has a 19.1 Wh battery.

Some other feature worth noting are the 8MP rear camera along with 1.2MP front camera, which are also provided with the iPad Air 2. Again, both tablets enjoy Apple’s A8 processor and M8 co-processor. However, the iPad Mini 4 now comes with the iOS 9, which makes it an advancement over the bigger iPad Air 2. 

The problem with most of Apple’s products is that they are hard to repair. This issue is going to haunt iPad Mini 4 users as well since extreme amount of adhesive has been used inside the tablet. Even the lightning connector is soldered to the logic board, making the device immensely hard to open and repair. iPad Mini 4 has got a reparability rate of 2 out of 10 according to experts.… Read the rest
