Exchange 2013 – OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad are now available

As initially reported on the Exchange Team Blog – Microsoft released the OWA for iPhone and OWA for iPad apps yesterday for iPhone and iPad respectively.

Unfortunately, it’s only available for Office 365 customers (as I am) to this point. Exchange 2013 is planned for the future. I’ve been testing it out and it looks really good.

OWA for iPhone

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

OWA for iPad

Requirements: Compatible with iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular. Requires iOS 6.0 or later.

The EXPTA blog did a great job of mentioning the features..

  • Stored credentials so you are automatically logged into the app
  • Push notifications that actively notify you of new email
  • Meeting reminders that pop up even when the app is closed
  • Voice activated actions like scheduling a meeting or sending email
  • Contact sync so that OWA contacts are recognized by the iPhone’s caller ID function
  • Remote wipe capability that allows IT to delete email and calendar data in the app from the device in the event that the device gets lost or the user leaves the organization
