Microsoft beta build of Apple Silicon-compatible Office for Mac imminent

Microsoft plans to push an Apple Silicon-compatible Universal build of Office for Mac to its beta channel by the end of Wednesday.

Erik Schwiebert, the Principal Software Engineer for Apple products at Microsoft’s Office division made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. Apple began accepting Universal app submissions on Tuesday.

Schwiebert said there’s no official word on a public release date or Universal Office version for final release. Instead, the beta issuance is simply an “initial peek for customers to test on hardware they may be acquiring this week.”

Earlier in November, Microsoft issued a beta build of Excel that introduced Apple Silicon support for SQL Server connectivity settings.
