The beta version of Pages, Keynote, and Numbers for iCloud have been updated with features and improvements. The applications will now have the ability to remember the last document you opened and the settings that where used such as alignment guides and the zoom setting.
It’s been available on the iPad since that device launched, and now Apple has finally brought its iWork suite of productivity apps to the iPhone and iPod touch. That, of course, includes Keynote, Pages and Numbers, which are all now universal apps that run the same $9.99 apiece as their iPad-only predecessors — current users can simply upgrade for free, thankfully. Head on past the break for the complete press release.
AppleCare Protection Plan may cover certain types of damage, but it sure didn’t stop up today’s alleged leak — if you pick an unlocked iPhone at the online Apple Store for Canada, Australia or the UK today and click the “Learn more” button on the AppleCare option, you’ll be treated to this “iWork for iPhone” containing screen. Coupled with the “Open in Keynote” prompt we saw a few weeks back, we may picking up the crumbs of a real app here, even if productivity isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when fondling that Retina Display.

Looking for more good news on the iPhone 4 front? Our eagle-eyed tipster iJcaP points out something that MacRumors also noted: on the iPhone 4 features page for Mail, a screenshot at the bottom lets a fairly large cat out of the bag. The picture shows an option to open a Keynote file… in Keynote. That, of course, implies a version of the iWork suite for the iPhone — currently only available for the iPad.
