Hoping to capitalize on the ever-expanding iOS market, Microsoft has finally decided to release an iOS version of its office suite staple, Microsoft Office.

Despite claims to the contrary, clearly some iOS users enjoy using their devices for productivity. Microsoft has begun searching for developers to “design, implement and test” versions of Office that will “be part of Microsoft’s next move on the Mac and on iOS.”

9to5Mac chimed in to say that the new job posting is “not solid proof that Office is coming soon, since Microsoft does have several other iOS apps, such as SkyDrive, OneNote, etc.” but also notes that it “specifically looks for someone to test Outlook/Powepoint on Mac and iOS.”

While this does not necessarily confirm that an iOS version of Microsoft Office will be coming soon, it does give credence to rumors that Microsoft will be releasing their popular office suite in this market.

Industry insider BGR previously reported that Microsoft is planning to release Office for both iOS and Android devices this November, so this new job posting isn’t a major surprise.
