Apple iWork Apps

These three apps now include support for Apple Pencil’s Scribble feature in iPadOS 14, redesigned image picker, new editable shapes, among others. The Scribble feature, for instance, lets you simply scribble down anywhere in the text field within iWork apps which then gets converted into a typed text.
