Thanks to native keyboard support, more people are now using Apple iPad as their go-to computing device. In order to deliver a great experience for these users, Microsoft yesterday announced new keyboard shortcuts on the Excel iPad app. These new keyboard shortcuts will bring the Excel authoring experience on iPad closer to macOS. Keyboard shortcuts are now available for navigation, editing formulas, and format and edit data.

Microsoft is introducing these 13 new shortcuts in the July release.
