Microsoft recently released surface series laptops with intel’s latest-generation chips. Now, it has released an update for Microsoft Word and Powerpoint applications that are available in Apple’s App Store. This new update is all about the split view. Yes, this update brings split view support for these two apps on iPad.
Users can now open Microsoft word and PowerPoint side-by-side on their iPads and can work on both of them simultaneously.
This update was first noticed by MacRumors. The split view can be accessed by touching and holding a document in file view and then dragging it to either the right or the left side of the screen. This mode is available for iPadOS users. Also, to come out of split-screen, users need to do is drag and drop the slider in the middle of the screen to either the right or the left side of the screen to close one of the opened documents. This action will help the desired app to acquire the entire screen.
As per the report by The Verge, The company is also planning to bring support for the cursor on Office for iPad. I hope so this update will come by the end of this year.
