Apple makes iMovie, iLife suite apps free for MacOS and iOS users
Transfer to a free model will allow customers to get the latest version using older hardware without paying extra
Apple is making its iWork and iLife suite productivity app free for Mac and iOS users. In 2013, Apple began offering its iMovie and iLife apps for free to new hardware customers, but continued to sell them to those who did not update their hardware. Now, Apple is slashing the price of its iWork and iLife apps,
According to 9to5Mac, iMovie and Garageband for iOS retailed for গ্র 4.99 for new customers, while pages, keynotes and numbers were priced at $ 9.99 each for new customers using old hardware. On Mac, iMovie and GarageBand are listed for $ 14.99 and 4.99, respectively. Pages, keynotes and numbers for each new customer using the old hardware have a price tag of 19.99. Apple has bundled or sold these apps for free on iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macs sold since September 2013.
MacRumors reports that the move to Apple’s free model will allow customers to get the latest version using older hardware without paying extra. Apple also has a document detailing how to get a copy of these apps under the company’s volume purchase program. Apple plans to drop support for 32-bit apps with the launch of iOS 11, and the move will help distribute the latest version of the app directly to all users.
