    I have a couple of macs, the most recent of which is an '11 iMac.

    I have iLife '11, but these don't show up as 'purchased' in the OSX store, which means I get no free upgrade today.

    Why is this? Can I have this changed/updated somehow?

    Thanks

    Same here. Basically my installation of iLife dates backed to the boxed version of iLife '11, and I've been getting free updates since then. Would be interested to know if/how I can upgrade to the new versions.

    Check my thread that I just posted. It will explain how to update. I was able to get it updated thanks to Apple support.

    Cool... I just checked the other thread. Thanks.

    Even more cool, I just tried updating my iLife apps just now in the "normal" way, and suddenly it works!!! :)

    As an update, I got my 2010 iMac out of storage recently. I plugged it in and ran through all the updates released since March 2012, when it went in - including OSX Mavericks.

    The iMac, in contrast to my 2009 MacBook, did download the new iPhoto and iMovie. Both these updates then suddenly appeared on my MacBook too!
