iWork is an office suite of desktop applications created by Apple for OS X and iOS operating systems. The first version of iWork, iWork '05, was released in 2005. The suite originally bundled Keynote, a presentation program which had previously been sold as a standalone application, and Pages, a combined word processing and page layout application. In 2007, Apple released iWork '08, which contained a new spreadsheet application, Numbers. iWork also included access to, which came in iWork '09 (released in 6th, January 2009), a beta service that allowed users to upload and share documents online with others, who could download them and give feedback. has been replaced by iCloud and device-native applications, rather than web-based applications. iWork integrates with existing applications from Apple's iLife suite through the Media Browser, which allows users to drag and drop music from iTunes, movies from iMovie, and photos from iPhoto and Aperture directly into iWork documents.

Although iWork is billed by Apple as "a successor to AppleWorks", it does not replicate the functionality of AppleWorks's database and drawing tools.

The first version of iWork, iWork '05, was announced on January 11, 2005 at the Macworld Conference & Expo and made available on January 22 in the United States and worldwide on January 29. iWork '05 comprised two applications: Keynote 2, a presentation creation program, and Pages, a word processor. iWork '05 was sold for US$79. A 30-day trial was also made available for download on Apple's website.
