You can use the mobile Office apps found in your iPhone's app store. Just sign in with a free Microsoft account or an Microsoft 365 work or school account. 

Set up Office apps on iPhone or iPad




On your iPhone or iPad, open any standalone mobile Office app (for example, Excel or Outlook). 


Sign in with your Microsoft account, or Microsoft 365 work or school account and then tap Next.


If you don't have a Microsoft Account contact your manager to place a request with the IT department to create you one right away.




When prompted to help us improve your Office mobile experience, tap Yes to opt in, or No to opt out.


Tap Turn on Notifications to enable alerts, or tap Not Now to set your preference later.




After you sign in, your account is automatically added to the current app, as well as any other Office apps that are installed on your iPhone or iPad. 




To add another account or a cloud service, like OneDrive or Dropbox, tap Open > Add a Place.




Choose the cloud service that you want to add. 


Enter the email address and password to sign into your preferred service. 


You're all set!
