Apple seeds new iOS iWork, Mac iPhoto betas to developers

updated 10:00 pm EDT, Mon August 1, 2011

New versions incorporate iCloud syncing

On the heels of today's iCloud.com beta, Apple has released a new beta for iWork for iOS and a refreshed iPhoto for Mac that includes iCloud compatibility. The iWork updates will allow developers to sync documents begun on one iOS device onto another automatically (if desired), or onto the iCloud website -- where users can also edit documents, with the results automatically synced back to iOS devices.

The iCloud service now appears to also be replacing some or all of what was formerly known as iWork.com, with sub-sections for "iCloud for Pages" and the other iWork apps. The iCloud functionality must be manually turned on in each app after the new version is downloaded.

The iPhoto update is the second beta for version 9.2 and adds the ability to test the Photo Stream function that stores and syncs up to 1,000 photos as part of the basic (free) iCloud service.

The new iPhoto beta is not compatible with libraries created with the previous beta, and libraries that are converted to the new beta cannot be reverted back to non-beta iPhoto libraries, so developers are strongly cautioned to make a backup of the library first (the new beta will replace any existing copies of iPhoto).

    Ah. New versii.

    That explains why "go to Pages and turn on iCloud" was not making any sense.
