Microsoft has formally denied a report that the company is developing an iOS version of its Office productivity suite.
The company said that a report from news site The Daily purporting to show a screenshot of Office running on an iPad was not Microsoft's software.
The original report, which the site said was the result of live demonstration from a Microsoft employee.
Microsoft's denial, first posted in The New York Times, was reiterated in a post to the company's Twitter feed. Microsoft did not elaborate on whether the entire report or specific parts of the story were incorrect.
"Great respect for The Daily but regrettably someone is giving them bad info, and that’ll be clear in the coming weeks," the company tweeted.
While talk of an iOS version of Office is being denied, Microsoft has been working to migrate its iconic productivity suite to mobile devices.
A recent update on the ARM version of Windows 8 noted that Microsoft was developing a version of Office set to run on the mobile processor platform.
Windows 8 will be the first version of Microsoft's operating system designed for use in ARM processor powered devices. The OS will bring the debut of Metro, an application platform and interface designed for mobile use.
