Apple Opens Up ‘iWork for iCloud’ to Everyone, No Apple Device Required

Following a short beta testing period, Apple’s iCloud.com website has been updated to make its iWork suite of apps accessible to all users, even those without an Apple device.

As of today, anyone can sign up for an Apple ID to access Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for free. The software suite lets users create and edit text documents, presentations, and spreadsheets from their browsers. Signing up for a free Apple ID account entitles users to 1GB of complimentary iCloud storage to be used with the apps for storing documents.

Previously, access to Apple’s iWork suite of apps was limited to users who owned an iOS device or a Mac, but with Apple’s new web-only iCloud access, the company can draw new users to its platform and compete with more universal software offerings like Microsoft’s Office Suite.

iCloud.com’s web-only apps can be accessed from recent versions of Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. Free accounts are limited to 1GB of storage and users will need an iOS device or Mac to acquire more storage or access iCloud’s full set of features.
