Jul 13, 2015 Question: Q: How can I download old versions of keynote pages and numbers for lion which I already bought from the AppStore? I Am not able to download my older versions of this software. I am running a MacBook 2ghz c2d with os x Lion. Answer (1 of 3): No. There are currently three versions of Keynote: the desktop version for macOS, the mobile version for iOS, and the browser version through iCloud.com. Apple has released updates to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote today that brings a host of new features to users of the productivity suite. For Pages, users can now embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo into their documents and more easily add captions to images, videos, and more.

Software Overview

Apple Keynote is a macOS app used to create, edit, save, and view presentations. It is one of Apple's three productivity apps available in the iWork suite, which is available for free for Mac users. The other two apps are Pages and Numbers. The application is also available for iOS and can be accessed using a browser on a Mac or PC through iCloud.

Keynote supports all versions of the Keynote presentation format, including '06, '08 and '09, and Microsoft PowerPoint .PPTX and .PPT formats. The app enables you to drop in photos or video, add reflections and picture frames to images, and insert high-quality transitions to the slides. Keynote allows you to present data in various ways, whether in a column, scatter, bar, pie, and bubble chart. You can also add animation to the charts.

The software enables you to share your presentation directly from the app through Mail, Messages, AirDrop, YouTube, Facebook, Photos, Dropbox, and Gmail. You can also share password-protected presentations via an iCloud link and preview shared presentations on iOS and Android browsers.


Keynote is an app designed for Mac users looking to present their ideas and data to an audience. The software gives you a variety of creative tools and effects and support for the PPTX format. While it is not as widely used as Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote is still a helpful (and free) presentation tool for Mac users.

With its powerful tools and dazzling effects, Keynote makes it easy to create stunning and memorable presentations, and comes included with most Apple devices. Use Apple Pencil on your iPad to create diagrams or illustrations that bring your slides to life. And with real‑time collaboration, your team can work together, whether they’re on Mac, iPad, iPhone, or a PC.

Keynote sets the stage for an impressive presentation. A simple, intuitive interface puts important tools front and center, so everyone on your team can easily add beautiful charts, edit photos, and incorporate cinematic effects. And Rehearse Mode lets you practice on the go, with the current or next slide, notes, and clock — all in one view.

Start with a gorgeous layout.

Choose from over 30 eye‑catching themes that instantly give your presentation a professional look. Or create your own slide designs, background images, and page‑by‑page customization.

Create next-level animations.

Add drama to your presentation with more than 30 cinematic transitions and effects. Make your words pop by adding textures, color gradients, and even photos — with just a tap. And animate objects along a path using Apple Pencil or your finger on your iPhone or iPad.

Make every slide spectacular.

Choose from over 700 Apple-designed shapes, galleries, math equations, and charts. Take a photo or scan a document with your iPhone, and Continuity Camera can send it straight to Keynote on your Mac.

What’s new in Keynote.


Add live video feeds to any slide.

Appear in a window, right on your slides, with a picture-in-picture display during remote presentations. Or include a live feed of your iPhone or iPad screen to show off apps.


Present with your team. Seamlessly.

For slideshows with multiple presenters, you can now take turns controlling a single deck — from anywhere — on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.

Play YouTube and Vimeo videos right in Keynote.

Embed a video from YouTube or Vimeo, then play them right in your presentations, without the need to download or open the video in a media player.*

Present over video conference.
Like a pro.

Play a slideshow in its own window so you can access other apps while you present. You can view your presenter notes, upcoming slides, and navigation in a separate window as well.

Outline your presentation. Easier.

With outline view for iPhone and iPad, quickly jot down your thoughts, restructure ideas, and move concepts from slide to slide. Then switch to slide view and start designing.

Turn handwriting into text. Magically.

With Scribble for iPadOS and Apple Pencil, your handwritten words will automatically be converted to typed text. Take notes, edit a presentation, or annotate text quickly.

With Keynote, presenting remotely can be just as seamless as presenting in person. Say goodbye to saying “Next slide, please” — now multiple people can present together, even remotely, with each person taking control of their section of the deck. Add a live video feed of yourself to any slide for a picture-in-picture experience. Or when presenting on your Mac, include a live feed of your iPhone or iPad screen to walk through your apps. You can even play a slideshow in its own window, so you can simultaneously access your notes and other apps.

You don’t work in one place on just one device. The same goes for Keynote. Work seamlessly across all your Apple devices. The slides you create using a Mac or iPad will look the same on an iPhone or web browser — and vice versa.

You can also work on presentations stored on iCloud or Box using a PC.

Work together in the same presentation, from across town or across the world. You can see your team’s edits as they make them — and they can watch as you make yours, too. When presenting as a team, you can also take turns controlling a single deck from anywhere.

Add color, illustrations, and handwritten comments for more
beautiful presentations with Apple Pencil on your iPad.

Teaming up with someone who uses Microsoft PowerPoint? Keynote makes it a great working relationship. You can save Keynote documents as PowerPoint files. Or import and edit PowerPoint documents right in Keynote.
