Apple Introduces New iWork and iLife Apps
Apple announced Tuesday its iWork productivity apps, Pages, Numbers and Keynote and iLife creativity apps, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand.
These have been completely redesigned to take full advantage of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7.
All apps have been updated to 64-bit, are integrated with iCloud, and are loaded with hundreds of new features.
Apple also has announced that both iWork and iLife are now free with the purchase of every new Mac or iOS device.
“This is the biggest day for apps in Apple’s history,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.
“These new versions deliver seamless experiences across devices that you can’t find anywhere else and are packed with great features like iMovie Theater, Drummer and a new unified file format for iWork documents across all your devices.”
According to the company, iWork and iLife for Mac come free with every new Mac purchase. Existing users running Mavericks can update their apps for free from the Mac App Store.
iWork and iLife for iOS are available for free from the App Store for any new device running iOS 7, and are also available as free updates for existing users.
