    I suspect that you have the original iPad.  If that's the case, 5.1.1 is the latest.

    See the chart below to determine whether you can upgrade your device and what you can upgrade to. If you do not have a Software Update option present on your iDevice, then you are trying to upgrade to iOS 5 or higher. You will have to connect your device to your computer and open iTunes in order to upgrade.

    You should not be able to download any updates to the Keynote app that will not run on your iPad.


    You will not, to my knowledge, be able to open Keynote files created by the iOS 7 version that was just released.

    But you might be able to save a file in a compatible format.

    This is in the OS X version, but it may also be available on the iOS version, but I cannot verify that.


    The file should be accessible via Since that Pages is the same as OS X, then you may be able to export from it.


    You can also share and email a document.

    Not unless you buy a new one.
