In light of last year’s launch of iCloud and the fact that there are now over 40 Million documents stored on iCloud by “millions” of Apple’s iWork customers, in yet another mailshot issued Tuesday Apple reminded iWork.com account owners that the iWork Public Beta will no longer be available as of July 31, 2012.
Citing that users will “no longer be able to access [their] documents on the iWork.com site or view them on the web” after this date, Apple today encouraged existing iWork Public Beta users to sign in to iWork.com before this deadline and download all of their documents to a computer, for safe-keeping.
The e-mail read:
Dear iWork.com user,
Thanks for participating in the iWork.com public beta.
Last year, we launched iCloud, a service that stores your music, photos, documents and more, and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Today, there are already over 40 million documents stored on iCloud by millions of iWork customers.
With a new way to share iWork documents between your devices using iCloud, the iWork.com public beta service will no longer be available. As of 31 July 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com site or view them on the web.
We recommend that you sign in to iWork.com before 31 July 2012 and download all your documents to your computer. For detailed instructions on how to save a copy of your documents to your computer, read this support article at Apple.com.
The iWork team
Further information on how you can download a copy of the documents currently stored on your iWork.com account is provided in this Apple KB article.
