Microsoft announced that Office 2010 and Office 2016 support will not be offered to Mac users. This statement means that updates will no longer be offered to these versions. The company offers two different ways for users who want to maintain their Office experience.
US-based technology giant Microsoft has announced that an era is coming to an end for Mac users. In the statements made by the company officials, it was stated that Office 2010 and Office 2016 support will not be given to Mac users as of today. This statement shows that consumers using Office 2010 and Office 2016 on the Mac platform will be vulnerable to vulnerabilities as of today. In addition, users will be missing out on bug fixes and new features.
In the statements made by Microsoft, it is mentioned that there will be no restrictions on access to these applications. However, Microsoft officials say that these applications will become dysfunctional after a while due to Mac updates and will reveal performance and security problems. Therefore, users are advised to switch to new versions.
According to Microosft’s statements, it should be said that Office 2016 users are more advantageous than Office 2010 users. Because Office 2010 users will not be able to use online services such as Exchange Online and SharePoint Online. Microsoft states that one of the versions of Office 365, Office 2019 or Office 2016 should be used for these services.
Microsoft offers two different ways for consumers using Office 2010 or Office 2016 on the Mac platform. One of these ways is Office 365 (now Microsoft 365), which Microsoft has not put its best to increase its popularity recently. Users can purchase this paid subscription service individually or institutionally. However, the only option for consumers who do not want to pay continuously is Office 2019, which can be licensed once per computer.
