Apple’s web-based iWork for iCloud finally out of beta, adds new features

Yesterday, Apple updated its iWork apps for iOS and OS X with added features including Split View for iPad, 3D Touch for iPhone 6s, and bonuses for El Capitan. Missed at the time was the fact that Apple also deemed the web-based version of iWork worthy of full consumption by the public, too.  Apple removed the ‘beta’ label from iWork for iCloud, while also adding a number of new features. The browser-dependent iWork suite now supports commenting on documents, and has support for ten new languages.

As well as removing the ‘beta’ labels, Apple has also created new splash pages for each of the new web apps showing off some of the new features. Apple lists the previously mentioned upgrades, as well the following:

Pages

  • Create custom colors
  • Word count
  • Version history
  • Preview on mobile browsers
  • Comments
  • Open Pages ’08 and ’06 documents
  • View documents with tracked changes
  • Insert pages and sections

Numbers

  • Edit pop-up menu cells
  • Create custom colors
  • Open Numbers ’08 spreadsheets
  • Filter tables
  • Version history
  • Animate interactive charts
  • Preview on mobile browsers

Keynote

  • Show, hide and resize slide navigator
  • Preview on mobile browsers
  • Version history
  • Comments
  • Create custom colors
  • Copy and paste slides
  • Open Keynote ’08 and ’06 files

If you want to check out the new web-based apps for yourself, head on over to iCloud.com.

Apple updates Pages, Keynote, and Numbers for iOS w/ stability improvements, fixes

Ahead of the release of iOS 9 set for tomorrow, Apple has started updating its iOS apps beginning with improvements and fixes for its iWork suite of iOS apps.

All three apps— Pages, Numbers, and Keynote—get an update today with “stability improvements and bug fixes,” many of which are likely related to the iOS 9 update arriving tomorrow. 

iOS 9 will officially arrive Wednesday, September 16th, for the iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch 5th generation and later, iPad 2 and later and iPad mini and later. The release follows Apple’s new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus going up for pre-order earlier this month and comes ahead of an official retail launch for the device on September 25th. Following the first weekend of pre-oreders, Apple said this week that it’s on pace to beat its previous opening-weekend record of 10 million units.

We’d expect that other Apple apps will get a similar treatment too alongside the release of iOS 9 tomorrow.
