•New storage options: open, edit, and save your work to iCloud and other online storage services. (requires iOS 8)

My iPad is a ‘2’ and it’s running well on iOs7. Using the older version of Word app, I can access Dropbox. Will I lose this capability by installing the new version of the Word (and Powerpoint) app, if I remain with iOS7?
