Apple Updates Its iWork Productivity Apps
A host of new features and capabilities have been added to the Apple Pages, Numbers and Keynote applications for users.Apple has just added a voluminous new round of usability and feature improvements to its Pages, Numbers and Keynote productivity applications for Macs, MacBooks, iPads and iPhones. The updates and improvements to Pages, Numbers and Keynotes span myriad functions and user needs in each of the applications, including viewing and restoring changes made to a document over time and previewing shared documents or spreadsheets using iOS and Android browsers. The application updates also incorporate the new capabilities in Apple's latest OS X El Capitan desktop and iOS 9 mobile operating systems, according to the company. That means that the applications gain multi-tasking features, such as Split View, Slide Over and Picture in Picture on iPads on iOS 9, as well as increased processing speed from iOS 9's 64-bit capabilities. Multi-tasking is also deepened and improved in the applications. Other improvements are aimed at making a user's content display in the same ways, whether it is viewed on a MacBook, Mac desktop or iPhone.
"You don't work in just one place on just one device," Apple said on its Website describing the improvements. "The same goes for Pages. Documents created on your Mac look exactly the same on your iPhone or iPad, and vice versa. And it's effortless to move your work from one device to another. You can even access your documents from the Web, share them and collaborate with others in real time." The same capabilities are now part of Numbers and Keynote as well.
