    Very exciting news on 9to5 Mac today about the possibility of Apple making the iWorks suite, as well as some of its other premium apps, free content with the advent of iOS 7. The news initially broke via a couple of eagle-eyed Twitter users who spotted that iWorks apps Pages, Numbers and Keynote all appear listed as free downloads in the newly released iOS 7 beta 3. Also included in the list of free apps are the likes of Garageband, iMovie and iPhoto, all of which are now currently paid apps. As 9to5 Mac notes, this move could have something to do with the upcoming launch of iWork for iCloud web apps, which will be free to use, thus Apple is possibly thinking that it makes good business sense to have both the iOS and iCloud iWork apps available to all for free. Being able to download these apps for free would certainly be a big saving for iOS users who haven't already purchased the apps at full price, with Keynote, Pages and Numbers all costing $9.99 currently.

      I think that the possibility of having iworks as a free download for iOS 7 is just wonderful for everyone. I have Pages already, but would love to see Numbers and Keynote be a free offering with the next update.

      Thanks, Maura for your hard work with this!

      Sigh. Then, there are the unfortunate sods who've already bought all three of the Apple office products...

      Still, good news for most... :)

      And - want to add my thanks for your hard work on the news, Maura. It is always appreciated (though not as often thanked or mentioned).

      This is good news! I purchased Numbers and Pages, but haven't had the money for Keynote.

      Thank you, Maura!

      I just bought pages back in 2011 and pages for Mac.

      Sent from my WiFi Only Black 64GB iPad with Retina Display in NYC using iPF

      It would indeed be a smart move by Apple to fight off the competition which basically gives away hardware. I have all of them but Numbers, which I would like too.

      I wish they would do the same on OS X! :)
