Microsoft released a new update to Office Insider in iOS as the company begins to test new features before releasing it to the public later this month.
Now in the 2.18 version for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, this latest update to Office Insider is a preview of the October 2018 feature update and includes three different new features.
First of all, there is a new option to import and edit icons in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Starting with this update, Microsoft allows customers to "use icons to add visual impact to their document by importing and editing one or more of our 500 icons."
If you use PowerPoint, there is more to you in this update. Microsoft has added new printing options and you can set exactly what you want to print, including slides with notes, multiple slides in a page, and full-page slide.
And last but not least, there are new features for Outlook. Now you can search for a shared calendar from Outlook and open it directly on iPhone.
Microsoft releases Office updates on iOS every month as part of the Office Insider program and this allows the company to remain committed to mobile devices regardless of the platform.
With Office Mobile applications abandoning Windows, Microsoft wants to focus entirely on Android and iOS, and these monthly improvements obviously play a key role. The company has already voiced its intention to align mobile applications with desktop applications, so important updates will be released in the next updates.
