Pages 12.2, Numbers 12.2, and Keynote 12.2

Apple has updated its iWork apps to version 12.2, adding new collaboration features to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. The three apps now enable you to view everyone’s activity in shared documents and get notifications when others join, comment, or make changes. You can also send a message or start a FaceTime call from a collaborative document (requires macOS 13 Ventura), see updates about documents in Messages, and manage shared documents via the File menu. All three apps also improve image background removal when using Ventura.

Numbers receives new functions to compare values and combine text with new functions, and Keynote gets a new Blank Layout document template when you want to start completely from scratch.

  1. The article says “macOS 11.0+”, but that’s contradicted by those web page links that all say “requires macOS 12.0 or later.”

    I’m still on macOS 11 (Big Sur) and have definitely not been offered it yet, so I’m holding off on updating those three apps on my iPad and iPhone (where the OS’es are up to date).

  2. Thanks! I’ve updated the text with that version number.
