Apple has today updated its iWork suite with new features for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.
The new version of Pages, 11.1, includes an update for linking and better integration with Schoolwork:
- Link to web pages, email addresses, and phone numbers from objects such as shapes, lines, images, drawings, or text boxes
- Teachers using the Schoolwork app to assign activities in Pages can now view student progress, including word count and time spent
