    so, I tried to purchase Numbers in the AppStore...notification came up that I needed iOS 7, which I figured would...offered me to upgrade (no thanks...staying on 6 as long as possible) but did not offer to let me download a legacy version, which I thought was the policy now...is this only for third party apps?...if so, I find that strange, because I already have Pages and GarageBand, and just out of curiousity, I tried to upgrade them, and it told me I needed iOS 7 for this version, but it offered to let me download the latest compatible version, which is weird because I was upgrading, not purchasing...thoughts?

    I second that. I would like to obtain a version of Pages for iOS 5.1 on my iPad 2. I've tried this with a variety of apps, both first and third party but sadly to no avail (always prompted to upgrade).

    I thought it might be because an update to iOS7 is available, though I've heard of people running iOS 6 on newer devices and legacy downloads are working fine. Perhaps it's yet to be rolled out in the UK, or something like that.

    Edit: Tried a few more apps. The only app that has prompted me thus far for 'last compatible version' was Instagram.

    This is typical of apps in the iOS and Mac app store. Once a new version shows up, the old version is removed and you have no way to buy/download it.
