Apple’s productivity-focused iWork apps—Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and iCloud.com— were updated this morning with a bunch of new features, including new editing capabilities across iOS, macOS and the web and the ability to quickly open password-protected documents using Touch ID. Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iOS are available free from App Store.

Pages, Numbers and Keynote for Mac are available via Mac App Store. Web-based versions of these apps are accessible via a desktop web browser at iCloud.com.

As noted in Apple’s support document which highlights the security contents of the company’s OS releases and apps, iWork for iOS and macOS fixed a bug which could expose the contents of password-protected PDFs exported from iWork.

“iWork used weak 40-bit RC4 encryption for password-protected PDF exports,” as per Apple. “This issue was addressed by changing iWork export to use AES-128.”

  • Steve Jobs

    They made the iOS 10 versions adopt some of the new UI elements, I think if the entire OS adopts it it could be nice. Just hate how it’s not consistent.

  • Iskren Donev

    Pages is my go-to document editor. Numbers and Keynote I never use, but then again I never create spreadsheets/presentations in the first place.

  • Andy

    Test drove handy new NUMBERS formula feature (STOCKH) that’s supposed to generate historical stock prices. FAIL. Applecare “genius” equally befuddled. S Jobs turning over in grave.

    How do you stop the blasted ‘What’s New in Pages’ window (popup?) from constantly launching every time you open Pages?? It’s SO annoying!!
