Please, Is Pages 09 a year it was first introduced or is 09 a number stating a type of application? I was looking for updates for Pages 09 since there haven't been any for years that I know of and confused if I needed to purchase a new application i.e. Pages 2013. Why you ask? Because a pop up from the Pages 09 application says updates are available at the App Store.  OK.  When I checked, there weren't any. Good Grief now what?


Then I found a download for Pages and got excited and started a download..... OOPs, saw it was for an iPhone.  It at first looked like an upgrade for my application but not what I was looking for in my concern.  The whole Pages and Pages 09 Marketing is confusing to me and unsure if there are still areas that I have overlooked or just didn't look well enough to find what solved my concerns.  Any thoughts please?.   Thank You In Advance for your Suggestions and Replies.

as of: January 01, 2013.

    Hi sure,


    09 is the year. No major updates since then (there isn't a Pages 2013).


    I am using Pages'09 version 4.3 (Menu > Pages > About Pages).


    Maybe the updates available are for a newer version of Pages'09



    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    What version of OSX are you running? This affects which update you can/should apply.


    1. There are many more templates available some free, some to buy


    2. Pages '09 can do layout, multiple columns, insert graphics etc, what exactly were you looking for?


    3. The App Store can only update Pages 09 bought from the App Store


    4. iWork purchased as a download, via demo with serial number or on DVD must be separately updated

    Not quite true point 3 and 4. If still on SL you you are right but if you have ML it will update through AppStore even if  installed from the DVD from the beginning.

    ysureican - If you still are using Snow Leopard or earlier system you can get updates here for Pages: and for iWork'09, including Pages 09, here:

    There isn't any point to update to more than iWork 9.0.4 if you have Snow Leopard. Later updates are for Lion and Mountain Lion.
