Each iOS app has also got bug fixes and minor updates. Details of the update for individual apps are listed below:

Numbers
Numbers is the spreadsheet application for iOS which lets users organize data into tables, perform calculations with formulas, and create charts and graphs using data entered into the spreadsheet.

The update brings improved compatibility with Microsoft Excel and Numbers for Mac. Users can now hide and unhide rows and columns, import and export Numbers for Mac spreadsheets with filters, and turn filters on and off, and preserve rich text in tables when importing and exporting. Furthermore, users can now also add reflections to shapes and lock and unlock objects.

Pages
Pages is a word processing application with page layout features. The app for iOS is updated for improved compatibility with Microsoft Word and Pages for Mac. Users can use Change Tracking to track changes to body text in a document, accept and reject individual changes as a user reviews a document, import Pages and Microsoft Word documents with change tracking and continue to track changes to body text, and preserve tracked changes in documents exported in Microsoft Word or Pages format.

Users can also preserve calculations in tables when importing from and exporting to Pages for Mac. Similar to Numbers users can now add reflections to shapes and lock and unlock objects.

Keynote
Keynote is an app used to create and play presentations. Keynote for iOS is updated for improved compatibility with Microsoft PowerPoint and Keynote for Mac. The update now lets a user import and export all Microsoft PowerPoint and Keynote for Mac slide sizes and presentation themes complete with master slides and preset styles. Users can also play back all Keynote action, including Move, Rotate, Scale, and Opacity.

With the latest update users will have option to add new slide transitions including Shimmer and Sparkle, preserve calculations in tables when importing from and exporting to Keynote for Mac, add reflections to shapes, and lock and unlock objects.

All three apps in the suite are each available for $20 in the Mac App Store and $10 each in the iOS App Store.
