Apple’s suite of productivity apps, which include Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, has been updated this week with a slate of new features and additions.

In each case, Apple has updated each app for both iOS and macOS, with only a few subtle differences to each. Still, while the changelogs can be pretty long, these are still minor updates in the grand scheme of things, so there might not be any major new features added to the mix that may bring you back to the iWork fold.

Still, if you do use any of Apple’s first-party productivity apps, there is quite a bit to like here.
