Apple GarageBand slip reveals it is next app to be free on iOS 7

An Apple revision of its "Built-in Apps" page for iPhone 5S on Apple.com briefly revealed that GarageBand will be the next application to be made free to download. Currently £2.99 on the iTunes store in the UK, all indications suggest that it will switch to a freemium model, with the software itself being free with Apple charging for additional instruments and content.

The page doesn't list GarageBand at all now, but after a revision - that has since been pulled again - the small print at the bottom explained that the app will be free to all iOS 7 devices, presumably after the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 announcements tomorrow.

As MacRumors pointed out before it was changed again, the new small print added the following line: "GarageBand is free on the App Store for all iOS 7 compatible devices; additional GarageBand instruments and sounds are available with an in-app purchase. iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are free on the App Store for qualifying iOS 7 compatible devices activated on or after September 1, 2013."

Since the further update, the new page just refers to iPhone, iMovie, Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
