Major iWork for iCloud update brings increased collaboration and larger file sizes

Apple has rolled out an update for its web-based iWork suite in iCloud. The update brings a number of new features across all three applications, including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. As part of the update, users can now collaborate with up to 100 people, up from 50 prior, as well as work on larger file sizes, up to 1 GB each. Users can also create 2D and interactive charts in all three applications as well. There are also additional features for each of the three apps.

In Pages, now users can also export files in the ePub format, which will allow users to more easily create e-books. Object layering and inline tables are also part of the document-based app update. For spreadsheets, Numbers is updated to allow users to export tables in CSV format and the app also allows users to create tables with alternate colors for rows and columns. KeyNote, Apple's alternative to PowerPoint, can now hide or show slide numbers.

Users can access iWork for iCloud on the web through a browser. Additionally, there are separate apps as well for iOS and Mac users.
