    Have a jailbreak trick idea. I think there is a way to fake device ID as iPhone6,1 for example just for App Store app to get those Pages, Numbers, Keynote for free. I assume Apple uses User-Agent header to send such info, but couldn't find any proof of this on the internet.
    Hacks allowing to spoof User-Agent won't work with App Store because it doesn't use UIWebView.
    Any ideas?

    You can edit the iOS version number to 11A470a (5C/5S only firmware) in SystemVersion.plist located in /System/Library/CoreServices

    That should work but could have some drawbacks.

    The "free" package is the result of activation of a new iDevice after September 1st.

    Not sure just changing a firmware version will trigger it being free.

    SystemVersion.plist won't work because build version is the same between 4S/5/5S/5C and the model number is not specified in that file.

    As I remember, you can just skip entering Apple ID during activation process, so I think it's not the case. SAM doesn't need to have Apple ID entered either.

    I think App Store sends the model identifier via HTTPS, there must be a way to spoof it ;)

    Nope
    For the 7.0 and the 7.0.2 that is correct, but the 7.0.1 11A470a is ONLY for 5C/5S.

    I thought conversations regarding pirated apps was not allowed on this forum?

    Is downloading a free app pirating?

    Up to the moment I've sniffed that iPhone 5 on 7.0.2 uses such User-Agents accessing App Store:
    Code:
    itunesstored/1.0 iOS/7.0.2 model/iPhone5,1 (6; dt:79)
    AppStore/2.0 iOS/7.0.2 model/iPhone5,1 (6; dt:79)
    itunescloudd/1.0 iOS/7.0.2 model/iPhone5,1 (6; dt:79)
    
    The problem is I can't spoof the User-Agent within the sniffer because of SSL.

    Only one possibility to do that is via some hack which will change 5,1 to 6,1 before SSL encryption.

    I would say that it's less pirating and more outright fraud. I would argue that it's far worse than pirating .

    Yup. That's a fraud and to a certain degree pirating too.

    But true, none the less.

    And threadstarter joined MacRumors just to defraud Apple so he could get some free apps to which he is not entitled.

    I actually was on the same page as you and was gonna post as such. At first glance I didn't see anything wrong with this. But ultimately the others are right. It's stealing. These apps are for people who buy a 5s. It's similar (but not exactly) to say Microsoft office coming with windows on a new computer. Just because it's "free" for the person who bought he computer doesn't mean it's free for someone with an older computer.

    I was ready to help the op too.
