On October 2013 Apple made the whole Mac OS X free and gave away the cool apps Keynote, Pages and Numbers for free with the OS. Anyone who purchased a Mac after October 1st 2013 has an option to get this deal. But, sadly the buyers before October 1st were left out. They still have to pay to get it from app store. If you are one among them, worry not. I am going to share the trick to get absolutely free on your old Mac OS X machine. All you have to do is download the Trial version of iWork suite for free from any 3rd party provider. Install it and then, you'll be shown and option to upgrade it to full version for free in your App Store. Follow the simple steps to do this :
1. Download the iWork '09 Trial (dmg file) from Softpedia link . Click Download and click External Mirror 1 . You have to download this from softpedia because Apple doesn't support Trial downloads of Apps any longer.
2. Go to your System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General -> Change Allow apps downloaded from to Anywhere
3. When the download is complete double click the dmg file and install the iWork '09 Trial.
4. Once the installation is finished wait for a few seconds and open your App Store in Mac and click the Updates section. Now you can see that 3 new updates for Pages, Keynote and Numbers appear on the list. Update them and you can enjoy all 3 incredible apps free for life.
