If you were hoping to run Office 2013 on your Mac then this will be disappointing news, Microsoft announced Office 2013 earlier this week, however at the same time they informed us that it won’t be making the way to Macs. Microsoft will, however, be adding SkyDrive integration to Office 2011. Great.
The Verge reports that Microsoft has confirmed that an update to Office 2011 for Mac will introduce SkyDrive integration and the ability to store your Office documents in the cloud. Like Dropbox, SkyDrive allows you to send your files to the Internet, rather than storing them locally, which allows you to access them from almost any Internet-connected device.
The update will arrive alongside the Office 2013 release, and that appears to be all you’ll get if you use a Mac.
Discussing the possibility of a future Office for Mac edition, Microsoft confirmed to us that there is no Office for Mac 2013 release planned. “We haven’t announced the next release of Office for Mac,” says a Microsoft spokesperson.
There is always Boot Camp, of course.
