Apple has just released updates to its iWork suite of apps enabling Touch ID protection for all private documents and files. It also updated Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps with additional editing features, and also updated the Apple TV remote app separately to bring support for iPads.
The Apple TV remote app worked fine on the iPhone, but was not supported on iPad tablets. Now, with version 1.1, the app brings support for iPads, which means you can control the Apple TV through the big screen device as well. In addition, the update also brings an enhanced ‘Now Playing’ experience with lyrics and playlists for music and chapters, audio tracks, and captions selection for movies and TV shows. You can download the update from here.
The Cupertino giant has also updated all of the apps in iWork suite across iOS, macOS, and the iCloud webapps to enable the ability to open password-protected documents and files using Touch ID. The update also makes it easier to find and replace fonts across documents for better uniformity. Apps like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote get additional features as well, and all of the new features are detailed below. You can download all these updates for free from the iOS or macOS App Store.
