Apple today released an update to its mobile presentation software that enables support for an Apple Watch-based remote application. The Keynote Remote app, which will allow users to control their slides from their wrists, was first mentioned during Apple’s October 2014 event.

The Cupertino company also pushed out updates to several of its other mobile apps, fixing bugs and improving stability. The updated apps include Pages, Numbers, Remote, and Beats Music. The Mac iWork apps were also updated with bug fixes.

Microsoft earlier today pushed out an update to PowerPoint for iPhone that enabled a similar Apple Watch app for controlling presentations made in that software.

Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Remote, Beats Music, and PowerPoint are all available for free on the iOS App Store. The Pages, Keynote, and Numbers updates for Mac are free for existing users and $19.99 for first-time buyers.
