Apple will be bundling in all of its free iWork and iLife apps for buyers of the 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, an Apple Retail training document reveals. The apps included are iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Keynote, Numbers, and iTunes U. iPhoto isn’t included, as it is being replaced by the new-and-improved Photos app in iOS 8 that includes more advanced editing tools and support for the new iCloud Photo Library.

For those who pick up the 16GB model, all of the aforementioned apps will still be available for download, they just won’t be pre-loaded on your iPhone when sent from the factory. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus go on sale this Friday at 8:00am at Apple Store locations, as well as cellular carrier stores. Pre-orders started this past Friday, and Apple has announced that it has sold 4 million iPhones within the first 24 hours of pre-sale availability.
