Apple has updated its iWork office suite across all platforms today, including Mac, iOS, and iCloud. The iCloud versions were the first to get an update, and now the Mac and iOS updates are also beginning to show up.
The iWork for iCloud apps were the first to show updates earlier this afternoon, with updates across the board for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Improvements included improved Retina display support, an updated design for the editor tab, and improved sharing functionality.
The Keynote presentation app has added the ability to edit charts within imported files. Numbers, Apple’s spreadsheet app has gained improved pop-up menus. And, Pages, Apple’s word processor, has improved text wrap, new templates, and also the ability to edit charts within imported files.
