Apple took the liberty of dividing the iWork suite in to its individual Apps (just as it did on the iPad) selling them for $19.99 each. The only version of iWork available is ’09 but a slip hinted the next version isn’t too far off. TUAW noted iWork ’11 was listed on the Mac App Store under iLife ’11 and was quickly pulled. This has fueled speculation that the next edition of iWork is approaching.
An email exchange between Steve Jobs and an iWork user also lends more evidence to an imminent iWork release:
It’s all coming soon. Stay tuned.

However, the mention of iWork ’11 on the Mac App Store could’ve been a typo that wasn’t caught during quality control.
