  1. Open the Apple Store app.
  2. Tap "Stores" on the tab bar at the bottom of the app.
  3. Scroll down to "iPhone Upgrade Program."
  4. Swipe left three times until you see the Procreate icon.
  5. Tap the icon.

Alternatively, the app can also be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of the "Featured" tab and tapping on the small banner that says "Download Procreate free."

Apple has offered several free apps through its own Apple Store app in the past, including Day One 2. The deal only pertains to the iPhone version of Procreate, normally priced at $2.99. [Direct Link]

Great, thanks for the 'heads up'.

Also what's extra nice is that due to Apple being able to deal with the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are NOT the only people in the world eligible to benefit from this. ;):D

The App Store app for iPad seems to indicate the iPad version of procreate is also free, but once you redeem the code you apparently only get the iPhone version for free. Is that a glitch or am I missing something?

Same issue for me. Perhaps it is 6S exclusive? I don't have a "Stores" tab nor is there an "iPhone Upgrade Program" showing in my app store at all.

It isn't in the App Store. It's in the Apple Store app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/apple-store/id375380948?mt=8

3. Scroll down to "iPhone Upgrade Program."

Yeah, nah.

At this rate I probably couldn't use ProCreate anyway.

But thanks again. Those really were good instructions.
