Do you delete the Apple apps automatically included with 64GB models.

    I have Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie, Garageband, and iTunes U just sitting in a folder that I created called "Apple Apps." Did you guys just delete these as soon as you got your iPhone 6? I feel like they are wasting space. If they are now associated with my Apple ID, I can download them anytime I want in the future? Did you guys delete them?

    I deleted them, but reinstalled iMovie because non-iOS devices seem to have issues with slow motion. Even Mavericks doesn't play it back correctly so I use iMove to "edit" my slow motion before I send it off so it plays correctly.

    It turned my 12 second slow motion video into a 30 second video that played correctly on Mac and Windows.

    I deleted all except Keynote, which I use regularly on my Mac, iPad, and now 6 Plus.

    Did a factory restore to 8.0.2 right when I opened the unit, so bye bye Apple apps.

    As an amateur videographer I'm actually curious what iMovie has to offer, but the rest can go.

    The 16GB does get them but they are not pre-installed because of limited storage. A 16GB owner can download them for free in the App Store.

    If I remember correctly it's hardware tied. iWork and iLife became free suites on both OS X and iOS last year, but only on models sold since the announcement.

    They are all showing as paid apps on my iPhone 5 for example, which is why I never bothered to use them.

    So if you upgrade from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 6, and sign in with the Apple ID onto the iPhone 6, that is how you tie the software to your ID for future associations?

    Deleted. Will download and install if/when I need them. But if I ever really NEED "Numbers" so I can edit spreadsheets on my phone, my life took a wrong turn somewhere.

    Nah. With that much storage I probably will never fill it up

    They announced it between two devices, both of which I purchased (can't remember which two). My first device, didn't show them as free. My second device (after the announcement) did show them as free. I "purchased" them for free on the second device, then was able to download them on the first device.


    As for the original question, I restored my iPhone 6 to iOS 8 as soon as I got it, so didn't see the apps - wasn't aware Apple actually did include them until I saw someone post on the forum about it.
    I downloaded them all when it asked when I first went to the App Store.

    If you bought a device after that announcement, then the apps are free for all devices regardless of whether they were purchased before or after that.

    I believe they all come with the 16gb models too? Anyways, I kept all pre installed apps from Apple on my first page.

    I must be the only one who really likes these apps. I use Pages quite a lot. I like Numbers a lot on the desktop, it's a bit awkward in iOS (but then that's probably true of most spreadsheets).
