Apple has done Mac users a huge favour and made several of its proprietary apps free to download and use on its devices.
For years, apps like iMovie and KeyNote have come free with new Mac devices, but second-hand owners have been denied this privilege – but MacRumours says that's all changed.
The full list includes Pages, KeyNote, Numbers, GarageBand and iMovie.
iPhone users, do not fret. The offer extends to you as well! Buyers of second-hand iPhones and iPads will now, too, be able to become both virtual DJs with GarageBand and amateur film-makers with iMovie.
KeyNote is a very good alternative to the tried and tested Microsoft PowerPoint, while iMovie is a surprisingly efficient and powerful video-editing tool.
Numbers is Apple’s own spreadsheet program, and Pages is its word processor and document designer.
GarageBand, however, is a stalwart of home music production software, allowing anyone from a curious tween to a clueless retiree to effortlessly create music – all without playing an actual instrument.
