In concert with the release of iOS 5 today, Apple also released updates for the iOS version of iMovie, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Remote, and Find My iPhone.

Find My iPhone was updated with "Find My Mac" functionality and the "option to request an email when an offline device comes online and is located", which is a nice feature for users with lost devices.

Remote and iMovie were given minor compatibility updates, but the iWork apps were given more comprehensive updates:

• Download your documents to a Mac or PC at icloud.com/iwork as Pages ’09, Word, or PDF files.

• View improved word counts with character, paragraph, and page counts.
• Improved compatibility with Microsoft Word and Pages ’09.
• Includes improved support for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language input.

• Download your spreadsheets to a Mac or PC at icloud.com/iwork as Numbers ’09, Excel, or PDF files.
• Drag and drop Numbers ’09, Excel, or CSV files to icloud.com from your Mac or PC to have them automatically appear on your iOS devices.
• Use sliders, steppers, and pop-ups to easily enter data and explore results.

• Drag and drop Keynote ’09 or PowerPoint presentations to icloud.com from your Mac or PC to have them automatically appear on your iOS devices.

Does anyone know if MS Office for Mac (I have the 2011 version) is compatible with iCloud as a companion/replacement for iWork?

Well, the updates say you can simply drag and drop documents on the iCloud Web App, and then they get pushed to your devices. I don't think there's any reason why it wouldn't work.

Woah, the iWork mentioned here is iWork for iOS, aka: iPad, iPhone. It is *NOT* talking about iWork for Mac OS X.

How do we update iWork if we have iWork that was purchased before the release of the App store?

This looks like a subtly monstrous update.

There are a lot of short comings in the iOS version of iWork which were addressed today.

Merged cells in numbers? Wonderful.

Support for slide-to-slide links in Keynote? Absolutely killer. Now we can do really cool interactive prototypes.

The iWork team has tons to be proud of.

Aperture also got an update

Only installs when you're running 10.7.2...

So is anyone keeping a count on how many pieces of software Apple is updating in one big effort? Imagine synchronizing all those dev teams. Incredible.

They are sure doing a better job than when MobileMe launched.
