On November 21, 2013, Apple released updates for its iWork applications, Pages 5.0.1, and Keynote 6.0.1 for the desktop, along with comparable updates to Keynote 2.0.1 and Pages 2.0.1 for iOS. In the desktop versions of Keynote and Pages, Apple added the ability to customize the toolbar, a feature offered in previous versions, but removed when the apps were first released for Mavericks. As 9to5 Mac indicated, there were a number of complaints online and on various discussion boards about the missing features. The L.A. Times reported that Apple was working on returning the missing features, and within a couple of weeks, Apple released some updates. In terms of other updates, Pages for iOS received some stability improvements, while Keynote for iOS received new transitions and builds to coincide with the desktop version, including Blinds, Color Planes, Confetti, Fall, Perspective, Pivot, and Swoosh.
There were also a number of complaints about iMovie, including some missing features and the inability to open projects created on iOS devices. Apple was unable to address the latter issue, but they did release iMovie 10.0.1 which enables computers with older video cards to install the latest version of the software.
Apple issued a statement that some features were removed due to how the apps were rewritten, but they are planning to return a lot of the old features, including some brand new ones over the next six months. In spite of these minor, momentary set backs, Apple made some huge improvements in the U.I., and design, with significant improvements to iCloud synchronization. Users can expect to see the following features in future updates of iWork:
