While Apple's iWork is a perfectly good productivity suite that includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote, Microsoft still controls the lion's share of the market with its own collection of office tools that are practically household names - Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Even if you prefer Apple's word processor and spreadsheet, you will most likely at some point have to convert a Pages file to a Word file, or Numbers spreadsheet to an Excel file, simply because more people use the Microsoft apps. The situation is the same regarding Keynote and PowerPoint, so if you ever need to convert your Keynote presentation, here's how to do it on iPhone, iPad and Mac:
iPhone or iPad
- Open the Keynote app and open a presentation that you want to convert.
- Tap the "..." button in the top right.
- Select Export.
- Choose PowerPoint. You can also export it as a movie, PDF or images.
- Now choose how you want to share it. You won't be keeping a copy of a PowerPoint version of your presentation, you will just be sending one (unless you choose to save it to your files).
- Open Keynote and open a presentation, then click on File -> Export -> PowerPoint.
- Choose PowerPoint again and click Next. For some reason you have a second chance to choose your export file type.
- Now give your file a name and choose where to save it.
