While following their last month reminder email to the MobileMe users, Apple has today sent out an email to the users registered to them under the iWork.com beta services Apple has reminded the users about the permanent discontinuation of their iWork.com beta services, as the Cupertino Company has revealed the new iCloud for the users, with similar and powerful features all around the different platforms. Apple has reminded the users with the final discontinuation date of iWork service by July 31.
Apple has introduced the new iCloud last year with the couple of new features and good grip on the iOS devices, and the new cloud services allow users to sync their developed data across the devices, with wide range of new options on both iWork and iCloud. Apple launched the iWork.com back in 2009, as a project under beta testing, and it appears that iWork.com never comes out from the beta version testing and now the Apple decided to kill the project, while the original functionality of the service is merged with new iCloud.
Dear iWork.com user,
Thanks for participating in the iWork.com public beta.
Last year, we launched iCloud, a service that stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Today, there are already over 40 million documents stored on iCloud by millions of iWork customers. Learn more about iCloud.
With a new way to share iWork documents between your devices using iCloud, the iWork.com public beta service will no longer be available. As of July 31, 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com site or view them on the web.
We recommend that you sign in to iWork.com before July 31, 2012, and download all your documents to your computer. For detailed instructions on how to save a copy of your documents on your computer, read this support article at Apple.com.
The iWork team
Apple introduced iWork.com for the users who uses its iWork suite on the Mac OS devices, and provides them a variety of tools online to bring their work on cloud and available on the number of devices with a single shot of web. The service worked well in the real-time and many users registered for the service, but now it appears that most of the users have managed to jump on iCloud.
However, iWork.com is not the only project that Apple has shut down for the better future of iCloud, Apple has also announced to be shutting down the famous MobileMe services, and reminded the users about the permanent discontinuation of its services by June 30. It appears that Apple has planned to shutdown iWork.com a month after the MobileMe discontinuation, and provides another month to the users to collect and manage their data from the Apple’s server.
