Apps in the iLife suite have been revamped for both platforms, with iPhoto receiving a new look on iOS along with the ability to create and order photo books on the iPad. iMovie has also received a cleaner, simpler look on iOS 7 with easier ways to browse and share video, including desktop-class effects such as slow-down and picture-in-picture video on the iPad. Lastly, GarageBand for Mac now allows users to add up to 16 tracks on 32-bit iOS devices and up to 32 tracks on 64-bit iOS devices, with a new feature called "Drummer" providing automatic and customizable drumming accompaniment.

Meanwhile, apps in the iWork suite have also been updated, with document editing application Pages enabling users to edit documents on the iPad with a new toolbar that includes quicker access to formatting options. On the Mac, Pages now has a new bar on the right that is context-sensitive, such as showing text-edit tools when typing and image-edit tools when using an images.

Spreadsheet program Numbers now features new spreadsheets with object-based design and new, interactive charts. Additionally, Apple's presentation software Keynote has received an update with new effects and animations including more realistic physics, with object-based animations making an apperance on the iPhone and iPad. All three applications in iWork also now include new collaboration tools, enabling users to edit the same document and the same time on iWork for iCloud.

Both iLife and iWork are now free with the purchase of a new Mac or iOS device, and are avaliable today.

Probably the best news in the keynote is Mavericks, iWork and iLife refreshes. Things that could be useful for me.

What's wrong with that icon? It's flat done in a good way.

Too flat. New icons look fresh and simplified without being boring.
