Apple updates the iWork suite, reveals new AR apps to aid learning
At today's education-focused event, the Cupertinians announced not only a new cheap iPad that will support Apple Pencil, but also important software updates to make it useful in the classroom.
The iWork suite has received an update — new versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote allow the user to write and sketch within their respective documents. Students can collaborate on documents either by sharing them via iCloud or by sharing an iPad (multiple users now supported for schools). Pages allows them to create digital books that they can collaborate on and view directly in iBooks. The teachers can also mark the projects straight in the respective app with advanced markup tools — each note can be attached to the exact word it pertains to, instead of the notes just looking like ink overlayed on top of the paper.
Clips has also been updated with more overlays and stickers to help students make video reports and teachers to create captivating videos for the classes.
