Apple on Thursday issued an update for its suite of iWork apps on iOS. Keynote, Pages and Numbers have all been updated to version 4.1, and the releases include a number of new features and improvements. Among the changes are a new on-page audio feature the allows you to record, edit and play clips and the ability to use Apple Pencil to select and scroll. Check out the full change logs below.
Apple today updated Pages, Keynote and Numbers for Mac, iPhone and iPad with several new features, including comment replying, new auto-correct and text replacement options, 500 professionally drawn shapes and more.
Good news, everyone! You no longer need to purchase eligible macOS or iOS hardware to get Apple’s productivity apps iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac for free. How cool is that?
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.
In addition to macOS Sierra, Apple on Tuesday also released updates for its Mac iWork apps to support real-time collaboration. The feature was announced at the iPhone 7 event earlier this month, and was added to iOS apps last week.
Real-time collaboration is exactly what it sounds like. With it, users can work simultaneously in any iWork app regardless of device. A list is displayed of all current document editors, and users see the others’ cursor activity in real time.
Apple on Wednesday announced an update for its iWork suite with the addition of real-time collaboration. This works for Numbers, Pages and Keynote, and Apple demonstrated the feature live on stage by live-editing their own Keynote deck.
Apple on Thursday pushed out updates for its iWork for iOS apps, bringing Pages, Numbers and Keynote to version 2.6. The updates are nearly identical for each app, bringing about support for many new iOS 9 and iPhone 6s features including multitasking and 3D Touch.
According to the change logs, users can now edit their various iWork documents in-app while using new iOS 9 features like Slide Over and Picture in Picture on iPad (depending on model). The apps also support Bluetooth keyboard shortcuts, text selection and much more.
Apple today removed the beta tag from its iWork for iCloud productivity suite, which it opened up to non-Apple device owners earlier this month. Now, anyone with a modern browser and an Apple ID can utilize the web-based office apps which include Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
As seen in the above screenshot, users who don’t have an Apple ID can create one by following the “Create one now” link, regardless of whether or not they own a Mac or iOS device. All that’s required is that they give their name, email address, date of birth and pick security questions.
Apple wants Windows and Android customers to use its iWork productivity suite as well so they announced that now everyone can use Pages, Numbers and Keynote web applications through the iCloud Beta web interface, even if they don’t own Apple devices.
An Apple ID account is still required to access Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iCloud, but the big news is that people can now create an Apple ID on the fly.
As noted by MacRumors, the announcement was made yesterday on the beta.iCloud.com website, indicating that these web apps may soon be accessible through the regular iCloud.com website, too.
