Apple Touts iWork for iCloud Upgrades Coming in ‘Just a Few Short Hours’

At its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, Apple introduced iWork for iCloud, a browser-based version of its productivity suite of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. The service has been in beta testing since that time, and the company is widely expected to make an official announcement about its launch at today’s media event, alongside new versions of iWork for both OS X and iOS.

Confirming that iWork for iCloud should officially launch today immediately following Apple’s media event, users attempting to access the iWork apps on are currently being greeted with messages alerting them that the service is being upgraded and that in „just a few short hours“ they will have access to the new features.

iPhone Media Event All But Confirmed for September 10

Over the weekend, AllThingsD reported that Apple will hold an iPhone-focused media event on September 10, introducing its next-generation iPhone 5S and perhaps a lower-cost „iPhone 5C“.

AllThingsD has an excellent track record with such reports, suggesting that the event will indeed take place on that date, but in case there was any doubt, The Loop‘s Jim Dalrymple is now confirming the report with a simple „Yep“ post.

Dalrymple is well connected at Apple and has on many occasions either confirmed or refuted other reports and rumors in simple one-word posts with 100% accuracy. Such reports are generally taken as coming directly from Apple but delivered through an unofficial channel.
