@ nasimson. I think such announcement are more of convenience than a major news.  Apple consumers still use Office.  Office being spread to such new devices allows them to continue to be on top and compete better with Google docs and other services which may want to compete in the office suite area with Microsoft.

So right! There's no excitement anymore! The only people who may look forward to such events are paid bloggers who would still want to write about these and the third party add-on developers.

Everyone else in the world has moved on!

Re: It makes sense
I just don't understand the fuss made over Office. Spreadsheets and Word processing apps should be commodities by now.

It makes sense
I'm really not surprised to see Microsoft adding functionality for iPad Pro and Apple Watch considering these devices will make up a good sized segment of the market upon launch, and continue to grow.  The best thing Microsoft can do is to ensure that their flagship suites, particularly Office, are supported on as many devices as possible.  Licensing is where Microsoft makes their money, so the more devices they can support, especially with BYOD and other mobility projects being undertaken by organizations, the more secure of a future Microsoft will have.
