iWork gets SaaS-y with Documents in the Cloud
Apple detailed its cloud service and released some new features that begin to rival Google Docs and Microsoft 365. Say hello to Apple's new Documents in the Cloud feature that lets you sync documents in the cloud and share them across devices.
If you are editing on the iPad, you can save the doc to the cloud and open it on the iPhone. It will even remember the slide or page that you were working on. It's compatible with Pages, Numbers and Keynote and is already available in the versions Apple just released last week.
Documents in the Cloud will work across iOS devices and Macs/PCs. Apple will also release a set of APIs for developers so that third-party developers can use this cloud storage system. The only thing missing is a web interface for editing, which Apple did not mention in its WWDC presentation.
