Music creation software listed under built-in iOS 7 apps page for short time
Apple could be preparing to release an updated version of GarageBand as a free iOS app, according to a rumor. The music creation software may end up following the same path as iWork, iPhoto, and iMovie in being free for iOS 7 devices, though there is suggestion that not everything in the app will be free to use.
An update on the built-in apps page, now reverted after being spotted by MacRumors, showed the same style of flat icons as leaked in the iOS iCloud Storage Management settings last week. The appearance on the page means that the app will no longer be an extra $5 charge through the App Store. Associated text advises that "additional GarageBand instruments and sounds are available with an in-app purchase," though stops short of stating how much these will cost.
More details are highly likely to be revealed at Apple's event tomorrow.
