macOS Mojave adds new features to Apple’s Pages, Numbers and Keynote

“Somewhere in Apple Park, there is a group of people putting on a brave face,” William Gallagher reports for AppleInsider. “They’re cheering the release of macOS Mojave, they’re toasting iOS 12 and only a little part of them is dying inside because nobody’s noticed all they’ve done for iWork.”

“You’re not even sure anyone calls Pages, Numbers and Keynote by the collective name of iWork anymore. We had to check: yes, Apple does still occasionally call them all that,” Gallagher reports. “Yet most of the updates to these apps in time for Mojave are significant and useful.”

“It’s chiefly the same quartet of features added to all of them but then the Numbers team has squeezed in something special just for their app,” Gallagher reports. “And Apple Notes has had a little love too.”

MacDailyNews Take: This is a good review of what’s nw for users of Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and/or Notes. All three of iWork’s apps look great in Dark Mode!


  1. I use Pages for most everything. Still go to illustrator for design. But for layout I dump it all in Pages. Geez I sure miss Pagemaker. First program I used in the 80’s
    Never did like indesign for some reason.

  2. “part of them is dying inside because nobody’s noticed all they’ve done for iWork.”

    Nobody has noticed because Apple castrated Pages 4.3 to make Pages 5 into an iPad baby program… pretty but missing huge numbers of fundamental features. I wonder if it has crawled its way back to the functionality of iWork 09 yet? Certainly hadn’t the last time I looked at reviews a couple of months ago.

    If anyone can be bothered to check, please let us know. Meantime, I’ll continue using 4.3, which, last time I looked, still had way more solid functionality than Pages 5, 6 and 7. As someone put it “a joke if you’re doing anything more than a thank you card”. I don’t think it has improved much since that remark.

  3. So when is Apple going to release a real MacBook Pro that power users can upgrade and that doesn’t have dongle hell? Or a real Mac Pro that doesn’t look like a trash can.

    There are so many power Mac users that I know that feel abandoned.
