Apple just made its Microsoft Office killer free — here’s how to download it

Pages for Mac


The Pages app for Mac

It’s not as well-known as Microsoft Word, but Apple makes a complete suite of office apps called iWork that directly competes with Microsoft Office. 

Now Apple’s productivity apps have gone free. On Tuesday, Apple made the latest versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iPhones, iPads, and Mac free. We first saw the news on MacRumors
