In 2013 following a five-year hiatus, Apple dropped new versions of Keynote, Pages, and Numbers on unsuspecting iWork '09 users. A lot of features were removed, and the user interface was significantly overhauled. The company fixed some of the more egregious omissions in the following months and then did a more significant update of the productivity suite in late 2014. Now, apparently, we're back on a yearly update schedule again. We got another round of iWork updates last month and a round of bug fix point updates after that. On the Mac, this brings Keynote to version 6.6.1, Pages to 5.6.1, and Numbers to 3.6.1. Together, they take up 1.4GB of disk space. In iOS, all three programs are version 2.6.1, taking up about 1.2GB of storage.
Like before, the apps are available through the Mac and iOS app stores. For most people, this will be a free upgrade, but if you haven't bought any new OS X or iOS hardware in the past two years and haven't bought (or even trialed) the apps before, they cost $20 each for the Mac apps and $10 each for the iOS ones. Although the iWork name isn't listed prominently, you'll find the apps when searching for "iWork" in the app stores. The iCloud versions still reside at icloud.com and have progressed beyond the beta stage. Finally, there's a Keynote extension for the Apple Watch, which you can install on your watch using the Watch app on your iPhone if you have Keynote installed on your phone.
So what's new?
