How to Make Excel Default on Mac (iOS)

When you make Excel your default app, it can help you get the best visibility of your files. Whether you are dealing with CSV, XLS, XLSX, or others, Excel helps make each file look more polished. 

Excel is more diverse, with more than four hundred functions, compared to Numbers, with more than 200. Moreover, Excel is more compatible than Numbers. Thus, if you are working with a broad group of people, using Numbers can be a deterrent to those that do not have an iOS operating system.
