Apple on Friday offered details about its
program, an incentive to get new Mac users to upgrade to the iLife package when it begins shipping later this month.

iLife is Apple’s new moniker for a bundle of applications including iTunes 3, iPhoto 2, iMovie 3 and iDVD 3. At last week’s Macworld Expo Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that iTunes, iPhoto and iMovie will be available for free download, while iDVD, due to its size, will be restricted to distribution by CD-ROM.
The iLife bundle begins shipping on January 25, 2003, and will carry a retail price of US$49. But Apple is offering the iLife Up-To-Date program modeled after its other Up-To-Date incentives by enabling users to buy the new package at a discount.
Anyone who purchases a SuperDrive-equipped Mac on or after January 7, 2003 — the date Apple announced the iLife bundle — can get iLife shipped to them for $19.95.
Users who want to take advantage of the program fill out an order form along with a copy of the dated sales receipt for the Macintosh. Terms and conditions apply, so check the Web site for details. iLife Up-To-Date expires on March 29, 2003.
In related news, that Web page also has details about Apple’s QuickBooks Up-To-Date program, which enables some new PowerBook G4 owners who bought their systems on or after January 7, 2003 to get a copy of Intuit QuickBooks Pro 5.0 for Mac.
