Apple's iWork is getting education-focused real-time collaboration just in time for the start of the new school year. While Apple has a long history in schools, in the past few years Google Docs has become the go-to method for many educators and students to share and work on documents.

When using the real-time collaboration each user is signified by a different color. Sort of like Google Docs and Microsoft Office. The new feature works on the Mac, iOS and the web, allows real time edits and has public and private mode.

Apple will release free iWork updates including this real-time collaboration feature on September 13th for iOS and on September 20th for macOS Sierra.
