Apple Numbers, a spreadsheet application included with macOS, iOS, and iPadOS for free, provides convenience for Apple users. However, sharing a workbook with non-Apple users can be challenging. Fortunately, you can easily convert your Numbers workbook to an Excel file. In this article, we’ll show you how.
