Following the release of iOS 8 on Wednesday, Apple rolled out updates for its iWork productivity app suite, bringing the titles up to speed with the company's latest mobile operating system.

So far, Apple has released Numbers and Keynote and Pages, all of which have reached version 2.4.2, with added support for iOS 8.

Looking at the release notes, it appears that the productivity suite is getting only a minor update to add support for Apple's latest iOS, which launched earlier today. The new versions are also compatible with iCloud Drive, but without OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the cross-platform file syncing and storage service is of limited use.

Apple notes the latest software comes with stability improvements and bug fixes.

Numbers and Keynote weigh in at 241MB and 459MB, respectively. Users who recently purchased an iOS device can download the apps for free from the iOS App Store, while those with older hardware can buy the apps at a price of $9.99 each.

Update: Apple has released Pages version 2.4.2 with the same iOS 8-centric changes seen in Numbers and Keynote. The app weighs in at 276MB and can be downloaded from the iOS App Store. The article has been updated to reflect the new information.
