IWork, iMovie & GarageBand apps are now free for all Mac & iOS users

Share

Hey, how would you like a copy of Apple's iMovie, GarageBand and iWork suite for free and totally legal? Aside from some of the improvements that it has made to these apps, it has also made a big change rather quietly. While they were already free to new Mac and iOS device customers (since 2013), making the price "free" makes them easier to download by everyone. Before today, those apps were free to users who bought a new Mac, iPhone, or iPad, and the free download was a one-time event. Now though, the applications are free to all iOS and mac users. However, this was limited exclusively to new devices and you had to purchase new hardware to avail yourself of this offer. Those with an older MacBook for example, had the choice to pay for Pages or eschew Apple's productivity app altogether in favor of something free like Google Docs or something more popular like Microsoft Word. Apple's alleged motive behind this change is to ensure more users have the most recent versions of their apps for free on older devices.
