OS X Mavericks: Updating disc-installed versions of Apple apps via the Mac App Store

After installing OS X Mavericks, the Mac App Store may ask you to install a different version of some of your Apple apps.

When you first open the Mac App Store in OS X Mavericks, it checks for any versions of these apps that may have come with your computer or were installed from DVD:

  • Aperture 3
  • iMovie '11
  • iPhoto '11
  • Pages '09
  • Numbers '09
  • Keynote '09

If found, the app is listed on the Updates page of the Mac App Store, and you are asked to sign in. The apps are then be added to your account. If the list of updates doesn't include a different version of the app, try again after installing all updates that are available, including any OS X Mavericks updates.

Note: If you still don't see these updates listed after applying OS X updates, check the Privacy pane of Spotlight preferences in System Preferences to make sure you haven't disabled indexing of your startup disk, or its Applications folder.
