Word for iPhone now has a reading mode … at long last there’s a way to look through a document without the keyboard and other editing tools getting in the way.

When a document is opened, it’s in read mode. No pesky keyboard or menus. The top line has Edit, Mobile View, Search, Share and a more icon to whole document properties and commands.
