Office for iOS reportedly at the heart of Apple and Microsoft in-app sales disagreement

Microsoft logoMicrosoft confirmed earlier reports that the company's SkyDrive iOS app update has been delayed by Apple, but it appears the issues are bigger than just SkyDrive. All Things D reports that Apple and Microsoft are locked in a battle over a 30 percent cut of Office 365 subscriptions for Office Mobile. The Verge exclusively revealed details on Office Mobile for iOS, including plans for a subscription version to edit documents on the iPhone and iPad.

Microsoft has been reportedly pushing Apple to adjust its developer license agreement that splits the cost of subscription services between a developer and Apple 70 / 30 percent. All Things D says Apple is sticking to its rules instead of negotiating a special deal for Microsoft. The additional disagreements explain why Microsoft's latest SkyDrive iOS app has been put on hold. A company spokesperson confirmed to The Verge earlier today that it is "in contact with Apple regarding the matter and hope to come to a resolution," for the SkyDrive app.

We've reached out to Microsoft for comment on the Office Mobile for iOS negotiations and we'll update you accordingly.
