PAGES extensions are created with iWork Pages, which is a word processing application that provides a way to create professionally finished documents and desktop publishing documents such as brochures and flyers.
Files that contain the file extension PAGES are a document file type that contains text, images, graphs, charts, document layouts, and other elements you typically use with a word processing program.
