Some controversy erupted last week after Apple implied that giving away its iWork Suite to new buyers of iOS and Macs would provide them with the productivity tools they need. Microsoft’s VP of Communications, Frank Shaw, in a blog response wrote the following: “And so it’s not surprising that we see other folks now talking about how much “work” you can get done on their devices. Adding watered down productivity apps. Bolting on aftermarket input devices. All in an effort to convince people that their entertainment devices are really work machines.” That was followed by a swipe at the press for positive coverage of Apple giving away iWork, a product Shaw said “was already priced like an afterthought.”

Apple’s September announcement of the iPhone 5s and 5c brought welcome news for users wishing for new productivity applications along with their enhanced devices: free copies of the popular iWork and iLife apps. Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, are staples for any professional interfacing with Microsoft Office documents, Adobe Acrobat files, Open Office formats, and the options even include saving certain Pages documents as iBooks files.  iLife includes applications like iPhoto, GarageBand, and iMovie

Today, Apple expanded the generosity in multiple ways. In addition to introducing the new iPad Air, the updated MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro computers, the company announced that iWork and iLife will now come free on any new iOS or OS X device purchased.

Office Docs on Your iPad


Apps that let you view, edit, and create Office documents on your new mobile computer


In the Fall 2009 issue of iPhone Life magazine, I authored an article that looked at the two major mobile application suites that allowed iPhone users to work with Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets (iphonelife.com/issues/Fall2009/TurningIphoneMobileOffice). With the release of the iPad, developers including Apple, have stepped up to the plate to offer a selection of apps for viewing, editing, and creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go with the iPad. In addition, Apple included support for Bluetooth-enabled external keyboards in the iPad.
