Apple has improved its suite of iOS productivity apps to make editing and sharing more seamless between these apps and iWork on Mac and Microsoft Office on Windows.

Updates for all three apps arrived on Tuesday and have added minor enhancements to each app, with most of these focusing on bringing the iOS experience closer to that of iWork on Mac or Office on Windows.

The most notable changes see Keynote now support a greater array of slide sizes and color themes from PowerPoint and Keynote for Mac, while Pages has a new feature for tracking, accepting and rejecting any recent changes made to the text.

Numbers has also had a small revamp, with functionality now on-board for users to hide or unhide rows or columns in spreadsheets, as well as preserve rich media text when importing tables to the application.

Each iWork app can now be updated via their respective iOS or Mac App Stores. As ever, the updates are free to existing users, with new buyers forced to pay $9.99 for the iOS apps and $19.99 apiece for Mac applications.
