iWork, iPhoto and iMovie for iOS Free with Any New iDevice

There had been one or two rumors floating about that Apple’s iWork Suite, along with iLife, would be going free. Leaks of app information pages seemed to corroborate this notion, and now good news that Apple on Tuesday announced any new iPhone, iPad or 5th gen iPod Touch will come with free copies of iWork, iPhoto & iMovie.


iMovie and iPhoto normally cost $4.99 (£2.99) individually in the App Store. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are usually priced at $9.99 (£6.99). Collectively that’s a $39.95 (£26.95) saving.

It’s a significant saving for consumers, and should help boost Apple’s user base across all of these premium apps. And for all of you productive folks out there will bestow upon you the powerful tools to get your work and documents completed on the fly. iPhoto and iMovie are ideal for tweaking images and videos, iMovie for creating and editing full HD movies, as well as iPhoto for more advanced photo management than the preloaded Photos app on the iPhone, and given how many of us now use our smartphones and tablets as our main shooter, it’s good to see that they’ve now gone free.

“We think that iWork is a really key advantage for our customers’ productivity, and iPhoto and iMovie are great for their creativity, almost all of our customers want these apps.” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Apple will be making the apps available to all iOS 7 compatible devices purchased after September 1st.When you set up a new iOS device, you will be prompted to download the apps you want onto your device.
