One of the most outstanding features in the new iPad is the Retina display, that Apple presented very well at last Wednesday’s media event. It was only natural that a few softwares get updated to be compatible with the Retina display feature. Among these softwares was iWork.
Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iOS have been updated and are still available at $9.99 each. For those who have purchased these softwares earlier the updates are available for free. According to Apple’s words earlier, the new updates will be launched today. The old versions were still available on the App store today before the update was released.
In Phil Schiller’s talk at the event last Wednesday he said minimal information as to what changes have been made to the software beside the availability to support the Retina display. “Apple’s iWork for iOS”’s website did not really say much too. This got us to think that there is nothing more on the new update besides supporting the higher resolution display.
We found out that version 1.6 of Pages, Keynote, and Numbers is now available in the App store in several countries. The updates did include a lot more than just supporting the Retina display. Each application supports amazing 3D bar, line, pie, and area charts. Keynote holds a number of other features like nine new builds and transitions, as well as animations for the previously mentioned new chart types. Pages now supports the landscape keyboard for iPhone and iPod touch.
