Apple's GarageBand, iMovie, iWork Apps Are Now Free for All

Apple has just cut the cost of a number of its Mac and iOS apps to the princely sum of zero. For the people out there on older iOS devices though, this news means that you will be able to download these apps and begin using them immediately at no cost.

The Cupertino firm has decided to make GarageBand, iWork and iMovie accessible to all users of MacOS and iOS, for the modest sum of nothing.

The apps have also been removed from being tracked by the App Store as Top Free App entries, as noted by Mac Rumors. Now though, the applications are free to all iOS and mac users. Buyers who availed of their Apple hardware after October 2013 already had these apps completely for free, according to Tech Radar. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID. These devices also received free updates and users also had the ability to re-download the versions for free.
