Making lives easier for Office users on iPad, Microsoft has made some changes to the payment method for the service on the iPad. Going forward, users will be able to buy monthly prescription of Microsoft Office. Previously, iPad users had to pay $99.99 for an annual subscription to Office 365 Home. However, they will now have the option to buy monthly subscription costing $6.99 and $9.99 for 365 Personal and 365 Home plans respectively.

This comes in the wake of Google releasing Slides on iOS, a worthy alternative to Microsoft Powerpoint that can be used to access Office files. Microsoft allows users to open and view Office files with its apps on iOS for free. However, creating a new one or editing an existing one requires an Office 365 subscription.
