While Apple’s iWork and iLife productivity suites are functional, some of you might be feeling that perhaps it’s time for Apple to make some substantial updates, especially since Microsoft Office 2013 has been released not too long ago. Apple has yet to make any announcements on that matter, but both Apple Bitch and MacNN have noted that there were job listings for senior software engineers who are expected to help out with the iLife and iWork team, suggesting that perhaps a major redevelopment of both productivity suites could be in the works. The job listings reveal that Apple might be looking to rework the interface of iWork and iLife, although we expect that improvements and upgrades under the hood will be taking place as well. No word on when the alleged revamped versions of iWork or iLife will be revealed, but considering that the major update for iWork and iLife took place four and two years ago respectively, we guess it’s about time.
