Deal Details

Last Edited by cricket702 November 7, 2013 at 02:46 PM
After upgrading Mavericks, it turned out that my trial versions of Aperture and iWork 09 were automatically upgraded to the most current version.

You can download an Aperture Trial from here: http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesui...3Trial.dmg

You must have a valid Aperture Trial serial number from an earlier install/e-mail, or whatever, you guys can figure that part out - I did. Once installed, visit the App store and choose to update.

You can download iWork 09 trial from softpedia.com. Just install it and visit the App Store and choose to update.

When all's said and done, you'll have $80.00 Aperture (free) - iWork apps ($60) free.

That's $140 dollars software for absolutely free.

A thumbs-down - probably from a Mac hater. This is a chance to get Aperture 3.5, costs $80, for free and it's a thumbs-down. Wow. How stupid can ya get?

It works. Just installed Aperture and went to the app page on App store and "update" laugh out loud

According to a MacTrast source at Apple:
It’s no coincidence that Apple’s support site doesn’t have downloads for the new Aperture, iWork, and iLife updates. They aren’t in our Software Update system either – and there’s a good reason for that. With Mavericks, we have changed the way we distribute updates for legacy versions of our apps

Rather than maintain separate updates for these in addition to the Mac App Store versions of each app, Apple has decided to eliminate their legacy software update system for apps entirely. Instead, when Mavericks discovers legacy apps installed on your Mac, it provisions them as a Mac App Store purchase using your Apple ID. It saves us a lot of time, effort, and bandwidth. After the provision is complete, it will appear in your Mac App Store history as though you have purchased the Mac App Store version of the app.

While we are aware that this enables piracy of our apps for unethical users, Apple has never taken a strong stance or action against piracy in the past. We like to believe that our users are honest, even if that belief is in vain.

which means this isn't going to change

Thanks OP! I had heard about iWork but didn't know about aperture and I follow macrumors! '
As for those who can't find a serial just google "aperture trial serial". Its the second option on my search and there are a few to try.
