And *you* get a software update ...

Apple updates iWork and visionOS (and drops some betas).

You could call today the day of the lesser software updates.

iWork, Apple’s free productivity suite that works on Mac, iPhone and iPad, just bumped up to version 14.0. The marquee features deal with collaboration and HEIC photos, so … not a showstopper.

Still, if you’re one of the legions of people who use Pages, Keynote and Numbers, you’ll want to update the apps for stability tweaks and other new features.

More exciting, but for a far smaller audience, is visionOS 1.1. This update to the software that powers the Vision Pro brings an upgrade called Spatial Personas. Apple headset owners say it makes collaborating — or simply hanging out to watch movies, etc., with other Vision Pro owners — much cooler.

One more thing ...

Pages is word processing with an incredible sense of style. And you can do almost anything with it.
