iWork gets Yosemite compatiblity, available free starting today

Announced at the iPad/Mac event today, to go right along with the public release of Yosemite, Apple will also be releasing a new version of iWork as well. The free update will be fully compatible with Yosemite, and get everything playing nicely across the board. iWork will help bring together Yosemite and iOS and take advantage of the Handoff feature, allowing users to pick up in the same place in a document on another device.

iWork includes a new UI, and includes the Pages, Keynote, Numbers applications.

  • Will the documents be compatible with iWork on IOS7?
  • Yes
  • Will the new iWork suite be free for those of us who do not have new devices (ie, a 2011 MacBook Pro, which didn't get last year's free iWork suite). Meaning: is iWork free now for anyone and everyone with an Apple device, regardless of the age of it? Last year iWork "FREE" meant only those who have new devices.
  • That's what I'd like to know, too... Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • So, it turns out that iWork is truly NOT FREE after all. After upgrading my 2011 Mac to Yosemite, the iWork applications are still a priced purchase in the Mac App Store. Shame, I'll be skipping those after all.
  • It is not as of yet. Was free on my iPad 4, not yet (if at all) on Mac mini Sent from the iMore App
