You may want to update your iWork apps today.

Following a rare overnight update on Tuesday, Apple has updated its Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps for iOS to version 2.5.4, returning full VoiceOver navigation and editing functionality to the apps.

The fixes resolve issues that prevented UI navigation and content editing using VoiceOver. In addition to the VoiceOver patch, Pages no longer blurs text on certain devices when the Speak Screen option is activated.

It’s unknown how long the bugs have persisted, but the launch of iOS 8.4 last week might be speeding along various bug fixes at 1 Infinite Loop.

The latest versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote come in at 279MB, 245MB and 463MB, respectively and are free downloads for existing users. New customers can purchase the apps from the iOS App Store for US$9.99 each.

If you’ve tried the newest versions of the app and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
