Free iLife and iWork apps also available for your older iOS devices iOS devices
As you probably know the brandnew iOS devices like the iPad Air enable you to download the iWork and iLife apps for free. What I didnít know is that once you downloaded them to your new device, they will also be available for free on your older devices.

In my case I bought an iPad Air and also got the apps for free on my older iPhone 5. It makes kinda sense, since the download is tied to your Apple ID, but I still didnít think about that until I noticed them downloading on my iPhone. In my case Automatic Downlods were enabled. So if you have this unchecked you just need to download the apps manually. The will show the Cloud icon instead of a price.

No great hint, but maybe someone else didnít think about that, too.

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. :)

In short: you can install apps for OS X or iOS on up to 5 devices that are associated with your AppleID.
