Free iWork for Mac users could help win new customers

Apple is trying to win over new users in the smartphone and online business productivity application round. It's doing is by offering its iWork productivity suite at no cost for iCloud users. Apple also recently announced that iWork would be free for iOS users as well. That means that the only platform left where Apple customers actually have to pay for iWork is the Mac. It leads to the question will Apple make iWork free a new Mac computers as well. "Office is the gold standard and iWork is a minuscule fraction of the market," Evan Niu explained.

The thought is that you can benefit Apple more using I worked as a tool to get people to migrate to its Mac computer without charging for the software. As it stands, most Mac users pay for productivity software and having free iWork would certainly help lure Windows customers are used to paying hundreds of dollars for Microsoft Word. This could be a very good idea, but there's no indication that Apple is actually going to do it at this time.
