There should be a "featured" icon that says "Pages. Numbers. Keynotes." That's the iWorks apps and those are now free. Garageband is there too. All are free.

Just tried to get Pages, but needs 10.12. I have 10.11, so no dice.

It would have been nice if they had released the last compatible versions for whatever system the user is using.

But then how would Apple forc...I mean entice their users to update to newer hardware when said hardware is pure shit and they know it?

Yeah. I love my Mini 2 but I'm not going to dump iOS 10 on it as I'm sure it would need a version of iTunes that 10.6.8 can't run.

Yeah, that's why I've held off upgrading my iPad... I'm stuck at the latest supported version. I intend to move my video & audio library over to a 2010 Mini but that's a lot of effort.
