View Full Version : Redownload Ilife

Jul 22, 2011, 06:14 AM
Just bough an Macbook air 13 inches 128SSD I5 yesterday and I am pleased with it.

I downloaded every update possible and even downloaded the free Ilife from the Appstore.

Now i went to my iMac 2010 and checked the app stop and in purchased tab, i do not have ilife.

Does that mean that the ilife is good for my Air only?

Correct, has always been the case that bundled iLife is only for the machine it came on.

Sorry to bump but I have to say that finally it's false

So I bought the macbook air 13 yesterday and updated it with Ilife 2011.

This afternoon I went to my iMac and then went into purchased that and it says Install

I though that i would pay but if i go look at example pages it says 19.00 while Ilife is Install

SO i call 1800-my-apple to make sure and they confirmed that I can download it on my iMac and don't pay since it's on the same apple ID

yay :)

That's definitely a change from the past then - but then the App Store is a new delivery method, and every other Mac comes with a restore disc. Good to hear though :)
