iWork Apps for macOS Sierra Updated With Real-Time Collaboration

With the release of macOS Sierra today, Apple also updated its line of iWork apps, including Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. The new update for each app introduces the same real-time collaboration feature, in beta form, brought to the iOS versions of each app last week.

Using real-time collaboration, users are able to edit one document in any iWork app simultaneously, no matter if they're using a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iCloud.com. Within Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, live updates of each user's cursor and a list of document editors keep everyone up-to-date on the progress of any document, spreadsheet, or presentation.

What's New in Version 6.0
- Real-time collaboration (feature in beta)
- Edit a document with others at the same time in Pages on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iCloud.com
- Share your document publicly or with specific people
- See who else is in a document
- See participants' cursors as they're editing

- Open and edit Pages '05 documents
- Use tabs to work with multiple documents in one window
- Wide color gamut image support
In Keynote, there's a new "Keynote Live" feature that lets users present a slideshow that anyone can follow from a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iCloud.com. Pages and Keynote also both feature support for opening and editing Pages and Keynote '05 documents.

Apple's line of iWork apps are free to users who have recently purchased a new Mac or iOS device. Otherwise, each iWork app for Mac is available for $19.99 while each iWork app for iOS is available for $9.99.

Well I just figured out why I can't update. These all require Sierra. Kind of annoying.

And updated with mirror pages and text flow from box to box and mail merge and...

Still, I use Pages almost daily.

Hey this works with ElCap too, it got activated the other day and I was running it fine. Maybe a bit overdue but it's a great feature. Happily able to drop google docs now :D

Has anyone found a complete list of new features introduced with this version?

Still waiting for Apple to return critical features deleted in Pages 5.x, and, if they haven't come back yet, hoping Sierra doesn't break Pages 4.3.
