Apple to make iWork, iLife apps free to new iOS customers Apple is mixing business with pleasure, and turning them into a great gift for buyers of the company’s new hardware. Appearing on stage at a special event held at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, CEO Tim Cook announced that the tech giant would start offering customers who purchase new iOS-powered devices a free copy of five apps from the iWork and iLife suites: Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, and iMovie.

(Note that while iOS7 is installable on these models, not every one of its features will be available on every model.) Those holding out for new iPad hardware will have to wait a bit — new models are expected before the end of the year.
