As hinted at previously, Apple will be providing five best-selling creativity and productivity apps free to customers buying new iOS devices. The iWork suite, consisting of Keynote, Pages, and Numbers, along with iPhoto and iMovie will be available to download at no charge to anyone purchasing a new iPad, new iPhone, or 5th-gen iPod touch in the future.

Apple CEO Tim Cook advised during today's iPhone and iOS event "We think that iWork is a really key advantage for our customers' productivity, and iPhoto and iMovie are great for their creativity," and that "Almost all of our customers want these apps." iWork for iCloud support will come included.

Eligible customers will in the future see an on-screen prompt in iOS7, providing the option of downloading the apps to the device.

Not understanding why previous users think they should get it free. Did you not get your $5 or $10 worth?

These are the iOS versions of the apps, not the Mac versions. Are you seriously going to try and have us believe that you don't think those iOS versions were worth every penny you paid for them??

And if you bought an iPhone 5, you'll need to "get a credit towards something" because the new iPhone 5c does everything the iPhone 5 did, supports more LTE bands, and is $100 cheaper than what you spent.
(And if you have an iPhone 4S, that's a given, as well, because new customers actually get that for free against a contract...! The outrage!)

Obviously.

Everything else just wouldn't be fair, right?

More to your point, did they not agree that the programs were worth $5/$10 by purchasing them?
