Apple makes iWork, iPhoto, iMovie free for new iOS device purchases
As <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293550==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/07/09/several.paid.apple.apps.included.in.first.time.rec ommendations/" rel='nofollow'>hinted at previously</a>, Apple will be providing five best-selling creativity and productivity apps free to customers buying new iOS devices.

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." <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293551==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/08/23/rollout.no.longer.gradual/" rel='nofollow'>iWork for iCloud</a> support will come included. <br />

What about the people who bought them previously? Will they get a credit towards something? that's not fair ..... I've bought 3 out of 5.

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?
