After Craig Federighi took the stage to announce the release date of iOS 7 Tim Cook once again came back on to discuss iWork. He said that “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.”
As such Apple will be making iWork free with any new iOS device. Apparently when you set up a new iOS device, you’re given a screen to download the iWork apps, iPhoto, and iMovie. This includes any new iPad, iPhone, or 5th-gen iPod touch.
It was not stated what would happen to the iWork suite for Mac, but with iWork for iCloud it is expected that they may also go free. But we will keep you updated on this.
