iWork apps for iOS and Mac get a massive update

Apple’s suite of iWork productivity apps received a big batch of updates today for both the Mac and iOS versions.

Keynote, Numbers and Pages for the two platforms added a bunch of new features. The biggest addition is some new outline styles. There are also a couple of new customization options for Apple Pencil and a face detection feature that intelligently positions people in placeholders and objects.

All six of the new app updates can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store or the iOS App Store. The entire list of new features on Pages, Numbers and Keynote is pretty exhaustive and quite a few overlaps for both apps.

Check out the full list of changes for each:
