How To Exchange Office Documents Between Mac, PC, iPad, And iPhone?
The easiest way for the user to exchange Office documents between Mac, PC, iPad, and iPhone is obviously to use Microsoft’s OneDrive. This service from the House of Redmond allows you to add files to the cloud in many different ways and then retrieve them wherever you are. The service works from a browser (you can manage single files up to 10GB), from File Explorer on Windows, from the OneDrive desktop or mobile app (available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone), from Microsoft Office, or Microsoft 365. After downloading the app for iOS, Mac, or PC, just specify the Microsoft account (email and password) to get access to folders and subfolders with various documents. To exchange documents on different platforms it is also possible to take advantage of alternative services such as Apple’s iCloud Drive, Dropbox, and other services.

Do I Need To Be Connected To The Internet To Use Office 365?
You don’t need to be connected online to use Office after installing and activating it on your devices. However, Internet access is required initially to install and activate Office, or later to install updates and manage to bill. It is also required to access documents stored on OneDrive unless you install the OneDrive desktop app. However, once installed, you can use Office applications (such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel) even offline (without an internet connection). We recommend that you connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up to date and download automatic updates. If you don’t connect to the internet at least every 39 days, applications go into reduced functionality mode and an unlicensed product error may be displayed. To reactivate your Office applications, simply reconnect to the internet and log into Office 365.
