Apple updates Pages, Keynote, and Numbers for iOS w/ stability improvements, fixes


Ahead of the release of iOS 9 set for tomorrow, Apple has started updating its iOS apps beginning with improvements and fixes for its iWork suite of iOS apps.

All three apps— Pages, Numbers, and Keynote—get an update today with “stability improvements and bug fixes,” many of which are likely related to the iOS 9 update arriving tomorrow. 

iOS 9 will officially arrive Wednesday, September 16th, for the iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch 5th generation and later, iPad 2 and later and iPad mini and later. The release follows Apple’s new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus going up for pre-order earlier this month and comes ahead of an official retail launch for the device on September 25th. Following the first weekend of pre-oreders, Apple said this week that it’s on pace to beat its previous opening-weekend record of 10 million units.

We’d expect that other Apple apps will get a similar treatment too alongside the release of iOS 9 tomorrow.

    I lost my Page’s documents after updating my iPad to iOs 9 ! If I don’t use iCloud, can I recover my docs????

    I also lost my Pages/Numbers docs after the iOS9 update. I had resisted turning iCloud Drive ON as I have an older desktop not running Yosemite but losing my docs was enough incentive (besides, I don’t really use the files on the desktop anyway). Once I turned on iCloud, it took maybe a minute or two but my Pages and Numbers files were there again. Whew! Why Apple must turn features off with each iOS upgrade is baffling.
