Apple unveiled iWork for iCloud last month at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2013, bringing its iWork suite at par with services like Google Docs. Those who are registered with the Mac or iOS developer programs, which cost $99 per year, were given access to the service in beta on the very day of it’s announcement. It is being reported today that Apple has also rolled out iWork for iCloud to free tier developers as well. They were sent emails today informing them that they now have access to the service.
Apart from the paid development programs, Apple also has a few free tiered development programs such as the general development account. People who have signed up at least once with their ID through the developer portal page are likely to receive this email. Reportedly, beta.iCloud.com is still limited to registered paid developers, whereas free tier ones say that they have access to iWork for iCloud when they sign in to iCloud. The public release of this service is expected this fall, alongside the company’s newly unveiled OS updates, iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks.
