With the latest update, iOS and macOS programs are free to download and available from the App Store for all users of the American company
Some will greet this news with enthusiasm, others will be indifferent. And then there will be a part of users that will be literally furious. And it is the one that has spent money to buy one of these programs. As of yesterday, GarageBand, iMovie, Keynote, Pages and Numbers are free.
Sorry, you might say. With the latest update, Apple's office software, available for both Macs and iPhones and iPads, can be downloaded for free. An important decision that will make happy especially those who have long purchased one of the devices of the Californian company, forced until a few days ago to put their hands in their wallets to take home one of these applications. Little will change, however, for owners of one of the new devices produced by Cupertino and bought after 2013. The reason is quite simple: GarageBand, iMovie, Keynote, Pages and Numbers were already preinstalled on these devices.
Very important apps
For those unfamiliar with the world of Apple, these applications are very important. GarageBand is a music editing program, while iMovie is for creating and editing videos. Keynote, Pages, Numbers are part of Apple's Office suite. The first is used to make presentations, the second to make "aesthetically pleasing" documents, the third to create spreadsheets. Useful programs and until a few hours ago also very expensive.
How to install free programs
To download and install one of the free software is very simple. First you need to have an Apple account. Then you just need to open the App Store and search for the program. At this point, you will need to download the application, which is available, as seen, in both computer and mobile versions.
