Apple iWork Suite for iOS and macOS updated with new features

Apple has issued an update to its iWork suite of apps, including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for both iOS and macOS, introducing new features and pushing the apps to Version 11.

The company has introduced new onscreen keypads on iOS, allowing users to enter values for text size, as well as spacing and table size, and objects can be removed by dragging across them.

Apple has also added a new ‘always open in edit mode’ feature, and new precise editing controls have been added to adjust the placement of objects like images.

Changes on macOS include an enhanced media browser, as well as an AppleScript function that allows users to change the password on a document or open a password-protected document, which is great news for professionals looking to switch to more secure software.

Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are available for free on the iOS App Store and macOS App Store, though you’ll need to be running macOS Big Sur or a recent iOS version to upgrade.
