September 10th was much awaited by Apple fans basically because of its new iPhones: 5S and 5C and also the latest iOS 7. Now, since almost all are announced, the fans are all geared up to get it as soon as possible.
Adding more spice in the event that happened a couple of hours ago, Apple also made a conspicuous announcement which is more likely to benefit its consumer base to another level. The announcement came with a bit of surprise when Tim Cook said that iWork application suite would come free with all the new iOS devices here on. However, it currently costs $5 - $10 at an average.
The iWork suite includes Pages and Numbers (the iOS equivalent of Microsoft's Word and Excel), iMovie, Keynote and iPhoto. These apps cover most of the basic office needs that users normally use for official purpose. "With one touch, boom, all five of these apps are downloaded for you, and some additional ones," Cook said at the event. "We think that iWork is a really key advantage for a customer's productivity, and that iPhoto and iMovie are great for their creativity," he said.
The apps are free with any new iOS device. This includes iPads, iPhones, and fifth-generation iPod Touches.
In fact, the removal of the price tag from iWork app will surely bring in a lot of new interests among the fans and it is definitely going to be a threat to services from Google like Drive and Microsoft's Office Suite.
