Tips to get iWorks and iLife Apps for free in old iOS devices

How to download iWorks and iLife Apps for free in old iOS devices.

Today I am going to teach you how to get iWorks and iLife suites for free in old Apple devices. When Apple first announced that iWorks and iLife will be made free, people thought that it will be available to all iDevices which has been updated to iOS7. But after updating the old devices most Apple users realized that these premium apps are free to only new buyers of iOS devices. Many old iDevice users, including me were left disappointed due to these terms and conditions from Apple.

But I did not gave up hope of getting these apps for free. After searching through numerous blogs and forums I found a way to get theses premium app suites from Apple for free in my iPad 4. This trick does not even require the iDevices to be jail broken. In fact when I first heard of this trick I was amazed by the simplicity of the trick.

The trick

Before going into the details of the trick one needs to understand the conditions set by Apple. As per the terms, these premium Apps are free for download on any iOS device activated after 1st September. Also we have to keep in mind that if an application is purchased in 1 device then it becomes available for download to 5 other Apple devices associated with the same Apple id. This trick is a combination of both this terms.

So in order to get the iWorks and iLife App suites for free, one needs to login to the App store with his existing Apple Id from any new iOS device .After login in, all the premium suites will be shown as free and then a download needs to be initiated. That is, a full download is also not necessary, just purchasing it for free using the old Apple Id will do. As soon as the purchase is done (for free) in the new device, the apps will be shown as ‘Purchased’ in the old device and can be downloaded for free in the old device.

Now many people will ask how they will get hold of a new iOS device without purchasing them. The answer is either ask a friend to lend their new iOS device or go to a Departmental store where iOS devices are placed on a display and use them. Just make sure to log out of the App store after the initial purchase is done.

The iOS devices at the apple stores do not allow anyone to download apps. There is simple no price and no option to log in. Same is true for iTunes on the macs at the stores. Research first before posting please…
