Apple’s iWork productivity suite was updated today on Mac App Store and App Store with several new editing features and other improvements available across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac devices.

For starters, Pages, Numbers and Keynote for Mac, along with their iOS counterparts, now come with a brand new library of over 500 professionally drawn shapes that you can readily use in your documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

Across all the iWork apps, users can now reply to comments and join threaded conversations, making collaborative editing even easier than before, while new auto-correction and text replacement options save time while typing.

In Numbers, the new Insert Stock Quote feature and the Stock and Currency functions let you get data from the previous market day’s close. Keynote now lets you scroll like a pro on your Mac’s trackpad with new pan and zoom options and your presenter notes can be edited while displaying slides in Light Table view.

    Linked text boxes are back… I’m so happy. This was one of my favourite features of OG Pages, and it broke my heart when Apple ios-ified the suite. But now iOS has caught up and we’re BACK! I am SO STOKED!
