Yes, iWork apps are pre-installed on the 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

A report prior to the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus claimed that the Apple iWork apps would be pre-installed on 64GB and 128GB devices. As retail launch hits today we're able to confirm the report as true, and that yes, these apps are pre-installed on your new iPhone, but worry not. If you don't want them you can delete them.

It's not like Apple's 'other' pre-installed apps that you might not want on your phone, you do at least get a choice. The full list includes iMovie, Garageband, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U. As you'll see in the image up top I've already removed Keynote.

So they're there. But only if you want them. Which is good.

  • iMovie I plan on using a LOT. Same goes with iBooks. Everything else can go. Sent from the iMore App
  • ITunes U and keynote will go bye bye on my phone. Almost time to pick it up! Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • Can't delete "Tips" though. Sent from the iMore App
  • But Tips doesn't take up several GB as the combined iWork and iLife suites do. Now, if Tips couldn't be put in a folder, there'd be tables flying.
  • Before installing/uninstalling any apps, what's the available storage like out of the box for the 64 and 128? Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • 56GB available on the 64GB version. Will have to wait on other folks for word on the 128. That's capacity too, btw, not including what you've got with the iWork apps installed.
  • It was about 55gb on the 64gb and 110 b on the 128gb. Sent from the iMore App
  • That makes a lot of since to just add to help reach more people Sent from the iMore App
  • Wish I could delete Newsstand and Podcasts on my 5S though.
  • Go into settings general and restrictions. Turn it on and you can disable the podcast app at least. Not deleting it but at least removes it from the home screens. Sent from the iMore App

  • Can these be linked to your account so you can install them on other devices?
  • As long as you use iCloud on the other device using the same account. Sent from the iMore App
  • I think they are once you sign in with iCloud on a device since they're purchased technically. Sent from the iMore App
