The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c: What you need to know

Macworld staff | Sept. 12, 2013
While waiting for the new phones to know everything about them, here are some information about them that we have collated.

We'll be testing many accessories once we get our hands on the iPhone 5c and 5s, and we'll publish our findings here on Macworld.com.

Apple says it's making Keynote, Numbers, Pages, iMovie, and iPhoto for iOS free "for new devices"? Does that include the new iPhones? What about current iPhone owners?
Apple's webpage about the iPhone 5s built-in apps (and the similar page for the iPhone 5c) lists iMovie, iPhoto, and the iWork suite, but they don't actually come pre-installed.

Instead, any iOS 7-compatible device activated on or after September 1, 2013—regardless of when you purchased it—is eligible for free copies of these apps. If your device came pre-loaded with iOS 7, you'll be prompted during the setup process to download the iOS versions of Keynote, Numbers, Pages, iMovie, and iPhoto. If your device didn't come with iOS 7 pre-installed (but, again, you activated the device on or after September 1), once you install iOS 7, you'll be prompted during the iOS 7 setup process to install the apps. You'll need an Apple ID, but you won't have to pay for the apps—they're free with your new device.

Note that this offer isn't limited to the iPhone 5c and 5s—it includes any iOS 7-compatible device activated on or after September 1, including the iPhone 4 and 4s, the fifth-generation iPod touch, and recent iPads (see the list of compatible devices at the bottom of this page).

If you've got a device activated prior to September 1, 2013, you'll still be able to purchase the apps on the App Store, but you won't get them for free.
