Apple introduces free, web-only version of iWork for the public

Apple launched a web-only version of iWork that allows anyone to use Pages, Numbers and Keynote as long as they have an Apple ID. This online-only version is free, includes 1GB of storage and does not require the user to have an Apple device.

Web-only access is a free level of iCloud service that’s available to anyone, including people who don’t own or use Apple devices. It includes access to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud and 1 GB of free storage for any documents you create.

Our take on the news:


Brillant move by Apple to increase usage of iWork for iCloud by opening it up to people who may not have an iPhone, iPad or Mac. I will recommend it to my friends and family as a free alternative to Microsoft Office.


Also, this will introduce a lot of people who previously didn't have Apple IDs to iCloud and the company's ecosystem in general. A good move.
