Apple's iWork for iCloud Beta is now open to anyone with an Apple ID.

iCloud users who log into their accounts on Friday will find that they can access beta versions of Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Upon choosing one of those applications, they'll have free access to the productivity suite, and create everything from presentations to spreadsheets .

Apple has previously offered iWork for iCloud Beta to developers. The company also quietly tested out the service with some invited users. It appears now, however, that the apps are available to anyone on iCloud.

Apple announced iCloud for iWork at the Worldwide Developer Conference in June. The company said that it would make the platform available as a public beta. It's not clear when it'll come out of beta.
