Since 2013, Apple’s iWork and iLife app suites have been free to customers with new iOS and macOS devices. However, for those who chose not to purchase an updated Apple device, apps such as iMovie and GarageBand were priced anywhere from $4.99 to $14.99.
Early Tuesday morning however, Apple made those apps and plenty of others free for everyone.
In a report from MacRumors, they found that apps such as iMovie, Keynote, Numbers, Pages and GarageBand for Mac and iOS devices are now free to all users, regardless if they have one of the latest devices. This was reportedly done in an effort to help businesses and educations access the apps via the Volume Purchase Store.
