What were you expecting? Hours of labor went into making those two apps. There's no way around paying for paid software unless you tread into illegal activities, which I don't advise that you do.

Maybe you missed the part in the iPhone announcement on the 10th when these would be free with new device purchases.

It was promoted as free at the event,

After 11 1/2 months of owning my trusty iPhone 5 my on/off button became faulty.

I went in to Apple who replaced it FOC and when I updated and synced my apps I was offered iWorks, iMovie, Pages etc free of charge.

obviously I accepted their kind offer.

I simply set up the phone, went to App Store (on the phone), and the apps were free.

Contact Apple, either via the web or at an Apple Store, and have them fix it for you.

taxi for one...

thinking of backing the phone up, resetting it as a new iphone and downloading them then so theyre tied to my apple id, then starting again with the backup. its a mess about but cant be arsed going to apple when they'll probably just tell me to do the same.

It's buggy. Go in and out. Close app store try again.

My girlfriend's new 5C. Sometimes it shows full price, sometimes it shows free.

Everything is wonky and buggy with Apple's systems.

They weren't free for me until I rebooted my 5s. Then they were.

I bought my wife a iPhone 5c and set it up using all her logins and accounts.

I was very surprised when using my iPhone 5 (and my account) later those apps were now all free to me.

Truth be told I was planning on logging in as her in my phone and getting them, but it turned out to not be needed.

My point? Oh. I don't know, I guess my point it is it might be a little buggy. Or not. Who knows. I just like hearing myself talk.

Completely missed it. Flew right over the rock I'm under. :/

I had a similar problem. Find an Apple app in the App Store, and select it. Then, click on Apple below the title. This will pull up all of Apple's apps, and the proper price of Free should appear.

I cannot seem to find iWork. Is it not available in Canada or am I just an idiot?

Yup, but when I call up any of them they have a price attached. (Although I purchased pages long ago so maybe that is why?) I thought there was supposed to be a "Free Apps screen" that comes up...

If I recall correctly the free app screen only comes up if you do a fresh install of iOS. On my iPhone I only performed an update but with my iPad I did a fresh install and the free apps screen came up after I signed in with my account. I had oreads purchased the iWorks apps years ago.

It came up at one point shortly after upgrading, possibly upon visiting the App Store (although maybe after a few times).

It's free with new iOS device purchases.

Did you register your iPhone? It has to know you purchased a new phone before it will be free.

Derp. Thanks for at least making my stupidity chuckle-worthy. I hadn't read squat about the 5s or 5c. But now I know!
