Apple today released updates for its suite of iWork apps on iOS and Mac, introducing new features for Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. All of the apps have access to a new library that includes more than 500 professionally drawn shapes, and there’s a new feature that allows users to reply to comments and join threaded conversations.
Apple is also introducing new auto-correction and text replacement options that are designed to save users time when typing, and these new features are available in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers across both iOS and Mac.
Pages for iOS and Mac now support linked text boxes, and there’s a feature allowing users to export documents as fixed layout ePub books. When collaborating with other users on a document, there are new options for changing margins, headers, footers, and paper size in both apps, and in Pages for iOS specifically, there’s a new page thumbnail view for better navigation.
In Pages for Mac, Stock and Currency functions will now return data from the previous market day’s close.
The same Stock and Currency update is coming to Keynote for Mac, and there’s also a new option to edit notes while displaying slides in Light Table view. Also new to the Mac version of Keynote are new pan and zoom options. Light Table view is expanding to Keynote for iOS, and there’s an option to edit presenter notes when viewing slides.
Both versions of Numbers are being updated with support for print preview when working on collaborative spreadsheets, and the Insert Stock Quote feature and the Stock and Currency functions now use data from the previous market day’s close.
All of Apple’s iWork apps are available from the iOS App Store and Mac App Store for free. The apps have been fully free for download since April of 2017.
