MOD EDIT: The old thread was broken so the discussion has been split off into this new thread starting from the big update released in Dec 2014.

I bought the iPad version years ago, so i looked for the update. After reading the notes, i looked for the newly released version and i had the cloud symbol instead of the price in Euro.
Pressed it and it started downloading without asking if i want to purchase it.
Guess i got the new version for free.

That's awesome!

It looks like it was the iPhone version that became universal but Rockstar seems to have merged the seperate iPhone and iPad purchases so nobody get's left out.

I have now the old HD and the new universal version on my iPad.
I took a screenshot of the storepage with the cloud symbol before i started the download, just to be one the safe side in case they want to charge me for the game.

And if this free and painless update to a new universal version is intended, then i have to applaud Rockstar for doing the right thing in a way that i haven't heard of before.
