If you’ve always had your eyes on some of Apple’s most popular apps but didn’t want to cough up any money, there’s good news, Apple has updated several of its apps and has them listed as free.
That’s right, Apple has listed several of its apps as free in the App Store. The apps included are iMovie, Numbers, Keynotes, Pages, and GarageBand for both iOS and Mac devices. These apps are already free for Mac and iOS users who purchased a newer device or a device since 2013. However, for those who have an older device had to pay $5 or more per app before today’s announcement.
What’s the reason behind Apple making these apps free? According to its support document, it will make it easier for business and educational institutions to download these apps through the Volume Purchase Program store. If you’re a part of the Volume Purchase Program or have an older device and you’re interested in downloading these apps you can do so by heading to the App Store today. It’s unclear how long this offer will last so you might want to act fast.
