Taking advantage of the high storage capacities available on its 64 GB and 128 GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, Apple will be including the free iLife and iWork apps on those models preinstalled. The 16 GB models will still be eligible for the free apps, but users will have to download them manually, based on early word from a MacRumors source and now seconded by a separate source who provided 9to5Mac with details from Apple's internal documentation on the matter.
The preinstalled apps includes iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U, all of which are currently offered as free downloads the first time the App Store is launched on a new device.
Apple last year updated its iLife and iWork apps and started offering the two suites for free with the purchase of a new Mac or iOS device. New device owners received the apps for free in the App Store with the option to download them to their devices at any point in time.

If you can delete them, cue the lazy dummies and haters who will say "Apple makes you press the "X" to delete the apps! Waaaaaah!"
Edit: okay, several folks quoting me to say these apps aren't going to be installed in the rom like the Stocks app. I hope you all are correct! I couldn't care less about about the Garage Band app.
FWP indeed. This is the only place on earth where people get upset when you give them something (communicable diseases aside). :rolleyes:
