    I'm considering buying iWork to replace the MS Office suite on my mac. Has anyone heard anything about the possibility of iWork '10 coming out soon? Should I wait?

    I'm not sure I recall seeing much in the way of information for the next iWork. The release dates for previous iWork releases are:

    iWork '05 1/22/2005
    iWork '06 1/10/2006
    iWork '08 8/7/2007
    iWork '09 1/6/2009

    ...not much help is it? :rolleyes:

    Just as a guess, I'd say fall, 2010. iPhone OS 4.0 for iPad is due out then which would likely lead to some updates in the iWork for iPad apps. Updating the Mac versions at the same time would seem reasonable. It also falls into the recent 18-month or so pattern.

    I was also thinking about this as well as ilife. Im new to this so how do updates work? If I buy ilife and iwork 09 then 10 comes out in the fall do I pay a small update or would I have to buy all new?

    There have never been discounted upgrade prices for either iLife or iWork. Both are full price new versions. But, then you can sell or give the prior versions to anyone.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I went ahead and bought it, because I need it. No use in delaying the inevitable I guess. Frankly, I was getting tired of MS Office '08. And since I didn't have to buy Office, I didn't mind spending money on iWork - which happens to be cheaper.

    Just ordered iWork. £53 from amazon.co.uk if anyones interested. Pretty pretty pretty good price.

    That sounds rather expensive…

    EDIT: I see Apple is ripping you UK folks off. Guess I'm not surprised and quite sorry to see.
