iWork for iCloud apps are now available even without an Apple device

Apple wants Windows and Android customers to use its iWork productivity suite as well so they announced that now everyone can use Pages, Numbers and Keynote web applications through the iCloud Beta web interface, even if they don’t own Apple devices. An Apple ID account is still required to access Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iCloud.

As noted by MacRumors, the announcement was made yesterday on the beta.iCloud.com website, indicating that these web apps may soon be accessible through the regular iCloud.com website, too.

If you create an Apple ID without an Apple hardware, you will only get access to Pages, Numbers and Keynote with other iCloud options being unavailable for them.

By default though, Apple is only offering iCloud users with non-Apple hardware 1GB of free storage space compared to the 5GB it usually gives. Nonetheless, considering the fact that you can only use iWork for iCloud for creating and storing your documents, the 1GB of free storage space should be more than enough for almost everyone.

For now, the company is only allowing users to sign up through the beta version of its iCloud website, but it is probably only a matter of time before it rolls out the feature to the public version of the website as well.
