Microsoft to bring new Office improvements to iOS users in November

Microsoft continues to improve its Office bundle with new features that brought to users all over the world on a monthly basis. The next update detailed by Microsoft is aimed at iOS users and is expected to arrive by the end of November.

However, Office Insiders can already access the updated versions of Office apps. Microsoft plans to add a brand new feature called “digital ink,” which will be available for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for iPad and iPhone.

Digital ink is especially useful when used with digital pencil, as users will be able to sketch their ideas and make them come to life in a much easier and quicker way.

On top of that, Microsoft plans to improve the scrolling in Excel so that users can move quickly through long spreadsheets on their iOS touch device. For faster scrolling, developers plan to add new scroll handles, which will be visible and easy to use.

These are the most important new features for Office that Microsoft plans to add in November, but we don't rule out the release of new ones that haven't been announced yet.
