Apple seem to have accidentally let slip their plans for the iWork suite on the iPhone 4, with a rapidly pulled screenshot of the new smartphone suggesting that users will be able to open presentations in their mobile Keynote app. The shot, from the Features section of the iPhone 4 pages, was soon replaced with another showing “Open in iBooks” functionality instead.
Keynote is one of three productivity apps Apple announced alongside the iPad, the others being the word-processor Pages and the spreadsheet app Numbers. All three are available for $9.99 each, though currently only for Apple’s tablet.
Jobs made no mention of the iWork compatibility in his presentation yesterday, but then he also made clear that the iPhone 4 has over a 100 new user features and that he’d only be demonstrating a handful of them. Still, we wonder exactly how usable for content creation the suite will be on the iPhone 4, even with its high-resolution Retina Display, and whether it will be used more as a document viewer and for minor edits.
