new iwork

Continuing with its marathon software rollout, Apple has posted updates for its iWork apps on both iOS and Mac. The suite of productivity software now properly supports the just-released OS X Yosemite, along with its major new features like iCloud Drive and Continuity.

Both versions received various improvements, such as customizable alignments and easier file sharing, but the three Mac apps got a lot more love then their iOS counterparts. Pages, Numbers and Keynote for OS X have been redesigned to better match the new Yosemite.

Continuity is a significant new feature in Yosemite, which allows you to begin a project in an iWork app on iOS, and continue it on the Mac, and vice versa. iCloud Drive is also a notable addition, as it gives you the ability to store and manage various new document/file types.

Apple’s iWork apps are free to folks who have recently purchased a new Mac or iOS device. Otherwise, they can be found in their respective App stores for either $19.99 (Mac) or $9.99 (iOS) a piece. If you’re interested, we’ve provided links to all iOS and Mac iWork apps below.

    You should’ve used a newer pic of Keynote..

    What constitutes “New”? And I don’t remember him saying free for “New” Macs or other devices….

    • Shawn

      Been that way since last year. New macs get free iWork and iLife apps the same way iOS devices get new iLife and iWork as well.

      • Briggamortis

        Not sure why they would say the iWork apps are now free then like its something different.

      • Shawn

        Your comment doesn’t make sense. iWork and iLife are free if you buy a new device.

    If anyone tested Logic Pro “9” on Yosemite, could you say how the compatibility is?

    • Parker Crain

      I’m not sure, but final cut pro x is labeled “incompatible” for now 🙁 there’s probably a work around though… Time to hunt through the Internet!

      • Shawn

        I believe you can start it up by going through the Unix executable

      • Decio Arruda

        But most built in filters, effects & transitions won’t work.

      • Noah

        I don’t think the filters and the rest are actual applications, but try right-clicking on [the app], Get Info, Open in 32-bit mode.

      • Parker Crain

        Could you explain how to do that? That would be awesome!

      • Shawn

        Open the app package and open the Unix executible through terminal

  • Anyone know how the cloud providers function works? I canne seem to find anything in Pages relating to anything as such other than iCloud

    I purchased a Macbook Air less than a month ago. How do I get these for free?

    • GuyWithTheThings

      You go into the App Store and search Yosemite. There will be an App you can download. Upon opening, you’ll install Yosemite and the iWork apps should be downloaded as well… If not, look on the App Store and search for them.

        Im running the Public Beta of Yosemite already. Have been for about a 3 weeks. I see the iWorks apps in the store however they are at regular price.

  • GuyWithTheThings

    I’ve been on Yosemite for about an hour… I’m in love. Everything is so much better now. I still have an iMac I haven’t updated, and using Mavericks on that right now seems… old…

  • Tyler Smith

    Anybody’s Handoff not working???

  • Look at all the comments, typical example of one major pain with OS X; every major update breaks compatibility with apps/programs made for the previous version.
