Apple today released an update to the web-based iWork for iCloud beta, which includes Numbers, Pages and Keynote, with new collaboration features, folders, printing and more.
At WWDC in June, Apple introduced iWork for iCloud, a web based version of Apple’s productivity tools, Numbers, Pages and Keynote, that run in a browser. Although iWork for iCloud was open to everyone, it was in beta, and Apple plans to bring it out of beta at today’s event, as hinted in a banner on iCloud.com.
In early 2012, Apple had to block iCloud Mail push notifications in Germany due to an injunction won by Motorola.Â Today, Apple restored these notifications, around a month after the company got the injunction lifted by a German appeals court.
When Apple announced that it would be shutting down MobileMe, the company offered customers an extra 20GB of iCloud storage spaceÂ as an incentive for them to switch to iCloud. The complimentary storage space offer has now expired and users would be downgraded to the basic 5GB free plan, unless they’ve already purchased extra iCloud storage.
Activation Lock is a new feature in iOS 7 that ties your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with your Apple ID so that if your phone gets stolen, the thief has to know your login credentials to turn off Find My iPhone or erase the phone to factory state.
Apple, famously, got rid of the fake leather and linen characteristic of the Scott Forstall era of software design in iOS 7 in favour of flat UI elements, and now the same design has been applied to the iCloud web interface.
We got the first glimpse of it when Apple had updated its iCloud beta site in August.
