Sorry, developers and those who were randomly invited early to the party: Apple's iWork for iCloud beta is no longer an exclusive club, as Cupertino has lifted the velvet ropes and made it available to anyone with an Apple ID.
Back during WWDC, Apple announced that its beloved productivity suite, iWork, would be hosted on the web, thus allowing the Cupertino giant to compete with Google Drive. But now it appears that Apple might be taking that competition far more seriously than anticipated. Based on a welcome screen in the iOS 7 beta that was uncovered by German site ifun (as reported by MacRumors), Apple might be bringing both iWork and ILife to the masses for free on iOS.
With more than 300 million iCloud users, Apple is perfectly poised to expand upon the services it can offer, demonstrating a cloud-based version of iWork that will be available as a developer preview starting today.

Microsoft is making huge strides on bringing its productivity line-up to the cloud, so it's understandable that Apple is seeking to offer an alternative. Today, rumors are surfacing that Cupertino is partnering with VMware to push the company's own iWork software to the net.
The rumor mill is surely heating up but we take everything with a grain of salt around here. Once bitten, twice shy, and all that. But where Apple is in the news there's always going to be sparks. Here's ten stories that we found hot on the site this week.
