Nov 14, 2013 And the iWork can also be installed without a dime for those people who purchased Mac computers or iOS devices after Octover 1, 2013. I guess that would be a huge pity for a person just bought an iMac on Sep. But now, all the Mac computer users can get the iWork suit for free no matter you bought the Mac in 2011 or after Oct.1 2013. Apple recently introduced a new version of the iWork suite of office productivity apps and announced that all new Mac and iOS devices will get it for free. Well, if you're not purchasing a new Mac.
That's also true with your Mac purchases: If you buy a new Mac you can download the latest version of all the iLife applications on your pre-Mac App Store macs.
I guess that is also true for iWork for the Mac now that it comes free with new Macs.
This even applies to replacement devices. My iPhone 5 was replaced in an Apple store and two weeks ago and I qualified for Pages, Keynote and Numbers afterwards.
And here's a work-around if you want them, but didn't get a new iPhone... I have an iPhone 5. I won't upgrade til next year (likely the iPhone 6 or whatever they call it). But my daughter (11 years old) went from a 4 to a 5C. She doesn't use or need iWork. So I logged into the App Store on her phone under my ID and downloaded them. I then logged out and had her log back in and delete them. I then went to my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and they were now available to download, not purchase. :) The *free* part... the get them free with a new device is tied to the device, not the iTunes/AppStore ID. :)
