Difference between Office 365 Personal and Home?

I would like to know the difference between Office 365 Personal and Home. I am the only person that uses it but I would like to use it on my Mac, iPad and possibly on my iPhone. I had a subscription for Home but do I really need that one?

Hello Kelliec_170

If you're the only user, then the Personal subscription would serve your purposes. The restrictions for the number of devices and logins etc were improved in the latter part of last year as described in

Microsoft improves Office 365 device limits for subscribers

Hi KellieC_170

Office 365 Personal would be ideal for you, since you do not share your licence with other people and it is cheaper than the Home version . . .

With the Office 365 Personal version you can install that on all your devices (PC's and Mac's) there is no longer a limit and you can install the Mobile version on your iPad and iPhone
