"In rewriting these [OS X] applications, some features from iWork '09 were not available for the initial release," Apple said in a support document. "We plan to reintroduce some of these features in the next few releases and will continue to add brand new features on an ongoing basis."
Apple is believed to have dropped the features in the OS X version of the apps to make them more compatible with the iOS versions.
Apple said it plans to restore 18 features in all to Pages (8), Numbers (6) and Keynote (4) on the Mac in the next six months. Among them are customizable toolbars, renewed support for AppleScript workflow automation and page- and [...]

Numerous iOS users have complained that the a bug in the apps is causing them to crash and one video even demonstrates how the problem forces one iPhone 5S owner to reboot altogether.
iPhone in Canada reports (via Cult of Mac) that the crash is brought about when users open a document in Pages, Keynote or Numbers and then tap their device’s home button to return to the main menu.

iOS 7 is after all just one week old and Apple will be expected to iron [...]
Well known Apple follower Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, reported on Wednesday that there will be "no iPads" at Apple's upcoming event. The keynote is expected to feature Apple's next-generation iPhones, said to be called the "iPhone 5S" and "iPhone 5C."
There is a clear precedent for iPhone being the focus. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone 5 at a media event in September and followed that up in October at another media event where it unwrapped the iPad mini and the redesigned 5th generation iPad. That may well be Apple's plan for this year as well.

The iWork suite is available on Mac and iPad and comprises a number of Office-like applications, with “Pages” for word processing, “Numbers” for spreadsheets and “Keynote” for presentations.
All three apps have had relatively minor upgrades since the launch of the original iPad back in 2009 but could now get a new lease of life if a new report is to be believed.
MacRumors claims that Apple has been hiring staff for the iWork team since February and in all positions from senior software engineers to quality assurance engineers, with the job listing for the latter informing would-be employees that they will work on “the next [...]
Speaking during the open keynote at IDF, Intel chief product officer David Perlmutter said that the chipmaker expects to have more than 20 enterprise-ready tablets based on its Atom chipset.
Perlmutter was particularly eager to show how working professionals will be able to use these tablets, and carried out one demo of how doctors could utilize a Windows 8 tablet to show pregnant women ultrasound scans.
After safely negotiating the demo, the Intel exec demonstrated how Asus’ Windows 8 Vivo tablet (also based on the Atom chipset) can be used for touch-based video editing, before unveiling “Haswell”; the low-power, fourth generation of Intel's Core [...]
Elop, the final speaker at a keynote talk in MWC today, opened by questioning how long Android will remain as an open-source platform, before moving onto push Windows Phone as the future third disruptive smartphone OS, and one which he believes will attract third-party developers.

“We believe there will be a shift in people moving to discover [...]
