Apple has been planning on shutting down iWork.com for a while now, largely due to the launch of its iCloud services. Now, with just one week to go until Apple pulls the plug on the older service, the company has issued iWork.com users with a final reminder, advising them to download all documents housed at iWork.com to a computer before the website shuts down for good.
In the email, Apple notes:
Remember, as of 31 July 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com public beta site or view them on the web.
The email directs users to a support webpage, which explains how iWork.com users can download and save their files to a computer for future use:
- Go to www.iwork.com from a web browser.
- Sign in with the Apple ID and password you previously used with your iWork.com account.
- In the Shared Documents page, you will see all of the documents you have shared using iWork.com. Click the download arrow associated with the documents you want to download and preserve.
- When the drop-down menu appears, select the format you want for your download by choosing from the available options: iWork ’09, Microsoft Office, or PDF.
For more information on the above process, be sure to head over to the aforementioned support webpage. And if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them in the comments below.
