Apple Drops New Version Of iWork For iOS

At Apple’s iPad 3, cough, iPad, announcement today in San Francisco, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed, among other things, that it sold more iPads in Q4 2011 than any individual PC manufacturer sold of their PC devices. That’s pretty impressive.

There were quite a few other developments, such as the fact that iPhoto will be moving from the desktop to the iPad (finally), and Apple has also translated GarageBand and iMovie onto their tablet.

And beyond the cool updates to the iPad hardware itself (retina display, A5X processor), it also looks like an updated version of iWork is on the way to iOS. Not only that, but we’re hearing that Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are all being updated, which will be announced at some point today. Apparently they will all still cost $9.99 each, and are free updates for people who’ve already downloaded them.

It looks like iOS take on the iLife suite will also be getting an update, as Chris mentioned, and GarageBand will be getting some updates, including smart strings, note editor, and “jam session.”

We’ll be updating as we learn more.
