    I have an iPhone SE with iOS 12.0.

    I sometimes receive emails with MS Word documents attached. If I click on the attachment, the document is downloaded and I can read it. But if it had red 'Track changes' annotations in it, these cannot be seen. I have tried installing Word on my phone (but I find the iOS version of Word even more irritating and difficult to use than the MacOS one that I have to use on my desktop computer); and, having read that Pages will reveal annotations in a Word document, have tried that. But in neither case have I discovered how to open a downloaded document in the Word or the Pages app rather than in the iPhone's native software, and so still cannot read annotations. I should be very grateful for assistance.

    You should be able to open it in the native app then 'import' it into Pages. Usually select the square at the bottom and select pages from the options.
