Hi all.. el Pueblo is right. These is not free to all. I check the fine print yesterday. Only for activations priors Sept 1 2013
I will excellent to update these on the news!.
I really don't think they would have missed the opportunity to say "iLife and iWork" instead of "iWork, iPhoto, and iMovie". Maybe they didn't want to draw attention to the fact that iLife on OS X hasn't been updated in years and the fact that they've announced an iWork change without mention of it, but I just doubt GarageBand will be free.
And iPhoto, yes, but that's exactly the point. It's the only remaining app from Apple–that Apple can offer–that won't be free to new devices. And yet they didn't include it. To think a change would be made to that, their own policy, of their own software, between the time of announcement and the time of iOS 7's launch is silly. Six days; they couldn't have known? Soon enough to say it in the keynote? It's odd.
GarageBand was a free download on my 5s but note the free version does not include the full instrumentation - these are available as an in-app purchase for the same cost as the full GarageBand app which I had already purchased previously.
So with GarageBand, at least, Apple have tried to placate previous purchasers yet interest new users with a freebie.
