Apple Updates iWork Apps With Drawing, Book Creation

Apple significantly updated iWork today for the people who haven't yet transitioned to Google apps, particularly in the education space. This will allow you to handwrite notes using a Pencil in the margins of a document.

The company has announced that it will update its Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps with support for Apple Pencil. Teachers can make Digital Books for their class using their Mac. iBook Author will be present inside the pages app which could include photos, videos as well as illustrations from the Apple Pencil.

The company is also rolling out features that will allow users to create books in Pages, using an assortment of templates.

The new suite of apps has been created to take better advantage of the Apple Pencil.

Scott signs law requiring emergency generators at all Florida nursing homes, ALFs
As of January, 108 nursing homes and 138 assisted living facilities had installed the necessary equipment. Authorities said patients' body temperatures were up to 107.5 degrees.

For the very first time, users ranging from students to professionals will be able to draw, sketch or write directly into the pages with the advanced yet easy-to-use toolkit brought by Apple Pencil.

Book creation feature has also been introduced to Pages on both iOS and macOS.

Apple at its Apple Education Event announced a new iPad which will be available at a considerably lower price. It will also, presumably, allow students to annotate documents and texts that they're reading. Google, for instance, has managed to achieve wide adoption within classrooms thanks in part to its suite of apps and services, like Docs and Drive. Books can then be shared and will display beautifully in iBooks.

A new feature called Smart Annotation has been introduced, now in beta. The text can be made to auto-scroll at an adjustable speed and can be customized further during text playback. Box integration helps users collaborate in the different iWork documents stored in Box. Speaking of iOS, the iOS Pages app has a slight change that came with the update.
