Apple has just rolled out an array of exciting updates for Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, designed to enhance your productivity and creativity on iOS 17 and Mac devices.
Pages for iPhone and iPad: Elevate Your Documents
The Pages app for iPhone and iPad is getting a makeover like never before. With version 13.2, users can now bring an extra dimension to their documents by incorporating 3D objects in USDZ format. This feature allows you to create visually stunning and immersive documents.
In addition to 3D objects, you can now make your documents more expressive with the addition of Stickers. Plus, the app now offers inline predictions for text, streamlining your typing experience. Collaboration has never been easier – you can now start working on a document with others during a FaceTime call.
Spotlight integration has also been enhanced, making it effortless to find and open suggested documents. Dragging documents to the Pages icon on your Home Screen makes opening or importing them a breeze. And if you’re looking for a sleek and minimalistic document design, the new Minimalist Report template is at your disposal.
Furthermore, you can style paragraphs with new options for borders and background colors and remove external borders on charts imported from Microsoft Office files. These features are set to revolutionize your document creation process.
Keynote for iPhone and iPad: Elevate Your Presentations
Keynote has also received a significant boost in version 13.2. Now, you can bring a new dimension to your presentations by incorporating 3D objects in USDZ format, making your slides more engaging and interactive.
One of the most exciting features is the ability to play embedded animations within USDZ files or utilize Magic Move to animate 3D objects across slides. This is a game-changer for creating dynamic and captivating presentations.
As with Pages, Keynote now supports Stickers and inline text predictions. Collaboration during FaceTime calls is a snap, and finding and opening suggested presentations is effortless thanks to improved Spotlight integration.
To streamline your workflow, you can drag documents to the Keynote icon on your Home Screen for easy access. And if you want to add motion to your presentations, the new dynamic themes and live video slide layouts are here to help. Additionally, you can now export your presentation in ProRes formats directly from your iPhone or iPad.
Don’t forget about the handy feature of removing external borders on charts imported from Microsoft Office files, ensuring seamless compatibility.
Numbers for iPhone and iPad: Elevate Your Spreadsheets
Numbers for iPhone and iPad have received their share of enhancements in version 13.2. Like Pages and Keynote, you can now incorporate 3D objects in USDZ format into your spreadsheets for a visually stunning touch.
Stickers and inline text predictions are also available in Numbers, making your spreadsheet work more expressive and efficient. Collaboration during FaceTime calls is a breeze, and finding suggested spreadsheets has been streamlined through Spotlight integration.
Just like in the other iWork apps, you can drag documents to the Numbers icon on your Home Screen for quick access. And if you frequently work with charts imported from Microsoft Office files, you’ll appreciate the option to remove external borders.
Pages for Mac: Streamlined Document Creation
For Mac users, Pages has received updates to match the iOS improvements. You can now utilize 3D objects in USDZ format to bring a new dimension to your documents. The Minimalist Report template offers an elegant typography, color palette, and layout to enhance your document’s aesthetic. Styling paragraphs with new border options and removing external borders from imported Office files are also available on the Mac.
Keynote for Mac: Dynamic Presentations
Keynote for Mac introduces the same exciting features as its iOS counterpart. You can incorporate 3D objects in USDZ format, play embedded animations, use Magic Move, and remove external borders from imported charts. Additionally, you can add motion to your presentations with dynamic themes and live video slide layouts.
