If you bought Apple’s iWork apps recently, you may have a refund en route.
Per The Unofficial Apple Weblog and 9to5Mac, Apple will be offering credits to customers who purchased these apps after September 12th of this year. When Apple first introduced the iPhone 5s and 5c on September 12, they concurrently announced that new iOS device owners would be able to download Apple’s suite of mobile iWork apps along with most iLife apps for free. Taken together, the free apps would otherwise cost US$40.
Apple on Friday began sending out emails to eligible consumers indicating that iOS users who purchased iWork or iLife apps as early as September 1 will be eligible for iTunes credits in the amount they paid.
The e-mail reads as follows:
“Dear iTunes Customer,
On September 10, 2013, Apple announced that iPhoto, iMovie, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers iOS apps are now available as a free download on the App Store for qualifying iOS 7 compatible devices activated on or after September 1, 2013.
Our records indicate that you purchased one or more of these apps on or after September 1, 2013 so we have provided you with the iTunes code below in the amount of US$5.34. This credit can be used towards the purchase of any content on the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks Store.
Detailed instructions for redeeming the code can be found at http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1574. Code: [redacted]
Thank you and we hope you enjoy using this credit towards your next purchase on iTunes.
iTunes Customer Support iTunes Support”
So, if you bought the iWork apps after September 1st, keep your eyes peeled for the e-mail and let us know how it went in the comments section.
