Apple has updated their Built-in-Apps page on Apple.com to show off the new icons, and new descriptions for their iLife – iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand – and iWork – Numbers, Pages, Keynote – suites of creativity andproductivity apps ahead of theOctober 22 iPad and Mac event. It includes this line, suggesting GarageBand might join its 5 companions in going free, although in this case free-as-in-freemium:

GarageBand is free on the App Store for all iOS 7 compatible devices; additional GarageBand instruments and sounds are available with an in-app purchase.

Looks like some new features and new templates are also coming along for the ride. It’s not clear exactly what it all means, but here’s the copy:

iPhoto for iOS:
