Following the launch of Microsoft’s Office apps for iOS, Apple is updating its iWork apps for iCloud, Mac, and iOS, adding some major improvements to compete with Microsoft’s Excel,PowerPoint, and Word. As noted by 9to5Mac, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud have gained updated designs for their document, spreadsheet, and presentation editors along with support for Retina displays.
Apple is making some notable improvements to its iWork suite of productivity applications today across its platforms. First, the Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps found on iCloud.com have been updated with some enhancements: all three apps now have improved Retina display support, an updated design for the editor tab, and improved sharing functionality. The new sharing options allow users to share documents in a view-only state (previously, anyone could edit documents shared via iCloud), and documents can be opened directly via iCloud Mail.
