My brother made a large purchase on Amazon and was rewarded with a free software download. He saw FCPX was available and chose that. It is 10.1.4 Is there any way to upgrade to 10.2.1, or should I be happy that I was blessed with a free copy of FCPX?

Although Software update does not show FCPX as purchased software, it did download the supplemental content and pro video format support updates. I was hoping it would update FCPX to 10.2.1

I take from the lack of any replies that upgrading to 10.2.1 without paying for it is not an option.

If it was purchased on a different store account, it will not update unless you are logged in to that account.

10.2 was not a paid upgrade.

We did not get through the App store. My brother got it as a free download from the Amazon.com website. How would that work?

It wouldn't. FCPX is available only via the App Store.

I'm not aware of any other distribution channels.

I have never heard of Prime Purchase Rewards.
And neither has Google.

What is it ?

My brother is asleep at this moment. When he gets up I'll ask him the details.

He said he downloaded it from amazon. He used "purchase points."

I have those. Usually I just apply them to checkout, or maybe for free music from amazon's service. Which begs the question, how to use them on the apple app store?
