iWork now supports real-time collaboration

At Wednesday’s iPhone 7 event, Apple announced the ability of real-time collaboration for its iWork apps. The feature allows users to work on a Pages document, Numbers spreadsheet, and Keynote presentation at the same time.

During the iWork demonstration, Keynote was used to show that multiple users were editing a presentation during the event. A Participants list in Keynote showed the users working on the presentation, each represented with a different color.

Apple said that the real-time collaboration feature works across platforms on the Mac, iPad, and iPhone.

Why this matters: The inclusion of real-time collaboration makes the app suite more competitive with Google Docs, which has had real-time collaboration for some time. However, many iPad users find the iPad implementation of Google Docs less than optimal. Real-time collaboration is a feature many iWork have wanted for a long time.
