Microsoft (MSFT) unveiled the latest version of its productivity suite earlier this week, which focuses on touch optimizations and deeper integration with Microsoft’s cloud-based services. Office 2013 was shown off at great length for the Windows 8 operating system, but it was curious to some that no mention of OS X was made during Microsoft’s press conference. According to The Verge, the explanation is simple: Microsoft currently has no plans to release Office 2013 for Mac. “We haven’t announced the next release of Office for Mac,” a Microsoft spokesperson told the site. Microsoft does reportedly have plans to bring new SkyDrive cloud storage features to Office 2011 for Mac in a future update.
