Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Supports Touch ID for Outlook on iOSAuthor: Hiren MehtaLast Updated: May 20, 2020 Microsoft Corporation has released support for Touch ID on the iOS version of its Outlook app. This will now help users in having a protective wall around their inbox. There will be an added layer of security through Touch ID. Users will be allowed to secure their inbox and other folders having personal information. All these details will be secured with their Touch ID. Even if someone gets a hold of the user’s iOS device, their email folders will remain under protection.Microsoft Corporation Goes Where No iOS App has Gone BeforeProtecting a particular app or a feature of an app is not a very new concept. It is just that so far it has been quite alien to iOS users. But, Outlook has taken the initiative. It will put especially those users at ease that tend to hand their unlocked devices to their friends and family. It will do this keeping in mind that their privacy should remain intact. Android users regularly protect as many apps as they want with app protection services. But this is certainly a first for iOS users. A user may feel that the feature will not be used much on their device. But still, it is comfortable to think that they are protected in an odd moment.Outlook 2.2.2 is the latest version of the email client from Microsoft Corporation on iOS. Here, users can enable Touch ID by tapping on Settings and enabling the “Require Touch ID” toggle. There are other features too included in Outlook with the latest update. One of these is adding events in a mini-calendar for three days by simply tapping and holding a time slot. Another is the ability to view the display photos of event attendees.First Drawing in Office Apps and Now Touch ID in OutlookThis move is the latest attempt by the firm to lure iOS users to switch to its platform. There was one on the day of the Mitsubishi UFJ Securities Technology Tour in Seattle. At that time, Apple Inc.’s iPhone got drawing support on Office apps. A new drawing tab option was included in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for iPhone. Apple Inc.’s iPhone got finger-drawing support on Office tools, as an update for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint rolled out.With that Microsoft Office update, users were able to annotate on Word using their fingers. They could draw what they wish on their .docx files. This meant that users now had the ability to add to the Word documents by the use of their fingers. This was an option instead of the usual typing method. The same was applicable on Microsoft Excel, as you could add additional information on your spreadsheets. You could also make the necessary last-minute changes using only your finger.On Microsoft Powerpoint, users were able to add notes and information along with their slides. This would help make sure that they are on top of the latest presentation. The ability to add annotations by means of a finger input is of course much easier. It is also more practical when you consider making changes. These changes sometimes have to be made at the final moment. At that time, nothing is more convenient as an input tool as our finger, so it streamlines the whole process. To get that update, you would simply go to the App Store. Then, you would update your Microsoft Corporation Office Suite tools to their latest versions. Microsoft rolled out the update and new functions in phases. Users got the finger-input options within a week of roll-out.
