Apple just made a bunch of apps free for everyone

While they were already free to new Mac and iOS device customers (since 2013), making the price "free" makes them easier to download by everyone. Now they too can use iWork, iMovie, and GarageBand on their devices without having to pay a lot of money for Apple's software. Before today, those apps were free to users who bought a new Mac, iPhone, or iPad, and the free download was a one-time event.

A while ago, users purchasing new Macs or iPhones discovered that these applications were now free on their platform.

Arkansas fights on multiple legal fronts to begin executions
On Friday, the Arkansas Supreme Court halted Ward's execution after lawyers for the inmate argued he was mentally incompetent. He had been scheduled to die Monday night under the state's plan to put eight inmates to death before the end of the month.

Apple previously provided free copies of these apps to those who purchased new hardware.

The move also simplifies the price structure for iWork and iLife apps and may be one more sign that Apple plans to stop supporting 32-bit devices with iOS 11. Some of their desktop Mac counterparts were more expensive; iMovie was $14.99 and Pages, Numbers, and Keynote were the priciest at $19.99 each. The iWork suite includes Pages, the company's word processing application, as well as Keynote, its alternatives to PowerPoint, and Numbers, its Excel-like spreadsheet application. Now that the apps are free for everyone, users don't have to buy new devices from Apple to get these apps for free. The free versions are now available on the iTunes Store and the Mac App Store.
