Apple updates iWork for Mac and iOS with Office compatibility fixes and more

iwork-transparent

Apple has released updates for its entire suite of iWork apps today on both iOS and OS X. The updates include bug fixes for issues with some Microsoft Office documents and stability fixes across both platforms.

Other fixes on the Mac side include an issue that affected exporting presentations as images and master slides that included links in Keynote, and a problem that prevented users from being able to look up the definition of words in lists while using Pages.

The iOS version of Numbers also gained a fix for a problem where documents would not open to their last saved position. The mobile Keynote app got a fix for an issue with opening presentations that contain many images.

You can download the apps at the links below. The updates are free for existing users. For first-time buyers the Mac apps are $19.99 and the iOS versions are $9.99.

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

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 12.36.42

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.

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

ios9

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.

Apple updates iOS Pages, Numbers & Keynote apps to resolve accessibility bugs

iwork-for-ios

Apple has updated all three iWork iOS apps to resolve bugs that prevented Accessibility features working properly. Apple says that Pages, Numbers and Keynote all had “an issue that prevented proper navigation and editing with VoiceOver,” while Pages also blurred text when turning on Speak Screen on some iOS devices. The updates are to version 2.5.4.

Updates are of course free for existing users, each app costing $9.99 to purchase. Pages, Numbers and Keynote can all be downloaded from iTunes.

Apple places a great deal of emphasis on making its devices usable by as many people as possible, recently highlighting accessibility apps for Global Accessibility Awareness Day – and CEO Tim Cook famously telling investors to “get out of this stock” if they weren’t willing to see money invested in things like accessibility and environmental initiatives.

Unsigned singer used to demo Apple Music Connect during keynote releases first single

loren-kramar

If you’re an unsigned musician looking for your break into the big time, being featured by Apple during a keynote watched by millions of people around the world isn’t a bad way to start.

When Eddy Cue introduced Apple Music, he used the example of Loren Kramar to demonstrate Apple Music Artist Accounts, more colloquially known as Connect. Any artist, he said, would be able to share content with fans through the social features provided within Apple Music – and he named Kramar as an artist who was “going to be really, really huge.”

Kramar yesterday launched his debut single, My Life, on iTunesTNW did note earlier that Kramar wasn’t entirely without music connections prior to his new-found fame, having apparently worked with Joe Weinberger, a former music scout at Interscope, which was headed by Jimmy Iovine.

If you’re a musician, we can’t get you featured in a keynote, but we have explained everything you need to know about creating and managing your Connect artist profile page.

Drone flies low to give first close-up look at Apple’s new Campus 2 auditorium (Video)

A new flyover of Apple’s under construction Campus 2 project in Cupertino, California gives us one of our closest look yet at the site. We also get our first detailed look at work started on Apple’s new auditorium on the campus where it plans to host events when the project is complete.

The video below comes courtesy of MyithZ who was able to get these shots from just 120ft up, much closer than previous drone flyovers and Apple’s own aerial shots.

In addition to getting a look at progress made on the site since our last update, the video gives us a look at Apple’s new $160 million auditorium that will hold around 1,000 people and likely become the site of future Apple product unveilings and press events. Back in 2013 we got a glimpse at what the venue will look like once complete via some official mockups from Apple’s architect Norman Foster.

Here’s Apple’s plans for the building next to the currently under construction auditorium shot by MyithZ over the weekend:

Apple-Campus-2-Auditorium apple-campus-2-auditorium-002-lot Campus-2-auditorium-blueprint-01

Most of the auditorium is underground, as noted in Apple’s blueprints above, so when complete you’ll actually only see the Apple Store-like glass structure on ground level pictured in the mockup below:

applecampus2-keynote-auditorium-entrance (1)

Head below for the full drone flyover video to check out the auditorium and much more:

We’ve been tracking progress of the project in our Campus 2 construction timeline, adding monthly and sometimes weekly updates of drone flyovers, official aerial shots shared by Apple and City of Cupertino, and news surrounding the project. If Apple sticks to its current general construction timeline, it will complete construction by the end of 2016 and presumably begin the process of moving in the approximately 12,000 employees that the 176-acre site will house.

Apple today released an update to its mobile presentation software that enables support for an Apple Watch-based remote application. The Keynote Remote app, which will allow users to control their slides from their wrists, was first mentioned during Apple’s October 2014 event.

The Cupertino company also pushed out updates to several of its other mobile apps, fixing bugs and improving stability. The updated apps include Pages, Numbers, Remote, and Beats Music.

Microsoft earlier today pushed out an update to PowerPoint for iPhone that enabled a similar Apple Watch app for controlling presentations made in that software.

Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Remote, Beats Music, and PowerPoint are all available for free on the App Store.

Apple opens up iWork for iCloud apps to anyone, no need to own an Apple device

icloud-beta

Apple appears to be aiming to tempt Android and Windows users to try out its iWork apps, making Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iCloud available to anyone, with no requirement to own an Apple device. A new banner promoting the offer was last night added to the iCloud beta site, beta.icloud.com … 

The ability to use iWork for iCloud apps is of course of no use without storage space, so accounts created in this way get 1GB of free iCloud storage.

It’s not known at this stage whether Apple plans to roll out the offer to the main iCloud site, or is merely testing the waters on the beta site.
