I bought new MacBook Pro on April 2012 with GarageBand 6.0.4.

I go to the App Store to update GarageBand to 6.0.5.

But when I click update, it said that I never buy GarageBand.

I tried to get update at "" but it doesn't work.

How can I update?

GarageBand (Mac) '11, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Did GarageBand come preinstalled on your Mac?


    Then you need to "accept" your iLife applications at the AppStore and add them to your account:


    • Log into the AppStore with your account you are currently using.
    • Click the "Purchases" tab. You should see GarageBand, iPhoto, and  iMovie waiting to be accepted.
    • Click the "Accept" button for each of these.
    • Now you should be able to update them using the AppStore.
