    I'd recently purchased my Mac only ago previously owned a month ago and i was looking to update iPhoto and iMovie as it is saying there's an available update. I'm trying to update and of corse it wants the original owners password. I thought iLife was free with new macs. How do I go about updating my apps now.

    If you haven't already, try creating your own Apple ID, and log in to the App Store using that.

    I have an I.d and tried but, its recognizing me I guess as the owner of that particular software. I had thought iLife was part of the preinstalled software that came with the newer macs

    Resolved. I'll tell ya' dealing with Mac has been the greatest experience outside there products. I own 7 different products of there's and love everyone of them. There's a reason why there on top and primarily it's because it works. I couldn't be happier.
