Northeast Australia braces for cyclone, thousands flee to higher ground
By Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Thousands of Australians fled their homes on Monday as a powerful cyclone bore down on coastal towns in Queensland, where authorities urged 30,000 people to evacuate low lying areas most at risk from tidal surges and winds of up to 300 km per hour (185 mph). Cyclone Debbie is expected to gather strength before making landfall in the northeast state early on Tuesday, with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a category four storm, just one rung below the most dangerous wind speed level. The growing alarm persuaded the state government on Monday to warn some 25,000 people living in parts of Mackay, a city 950 kilometers (590 miles) north of the state capital Brisbane, to head south to higher ground.

Available as an over the air download and via your desktop computer, the latest iOS update brings with it a host of compelling new bells and whistles, including a Find My AirPods feature and a completely new APFS file system.
Somewhat obscured by the release of iOS 10.3, however, were a number of updates to Apple's suite of iWork software, a collection that includes Numbers, Pages and Keynote for both iOS and macOS. While updates to productivity software aren't typically all that exciting, you'll want to take note of some of the new features Apple introduced today if you're an existing iWork user or contemplating making the switch.
One of the more noteworthy enhancements is a more robust collaboration feature which allows users to "edit a document, spreadsheet or presentation with someone else in real time directly from the macOS and iOS apps." Further, today's iWork update brings with it support for Touch ID, essentially giving users the ability to security protect sensitive documents, spreadsheets and presentations via Apple's secure fingerprint recognition software.
Additional features on an app by app basis can be viewed below.
If you already have iWork installed on your computer or iOS device, you can download the above updates free of charge.
