Word, Excel, PowerPoint  

3D Model Support 

You can now rotate and interact with your 3D models. 


Car mode

Car mode is a full screen experience designed to improve safety while driving. Car mode auto launches when auto play is turned on and you have Outlook open but don’t do anything for 4 seconds. To avoid interfering with folks just wanting to check their emails while stationary (at a traffic light for example) auto-play is cancelled if you interact with the app within those 4 seconds.

Show weather forecast on Calendar 

Come rain or shine, be prepared for the week ahead! Weather in Outlook for iOS gives you the latest weather information on your calendar in Outlook based on your current location. Go to your Calendar settings in Outlook for iOS to add weather to your Outlook app today.
