iLife for iOS gets Updates ahead of iOS 7 Launch

| Product News

Apple followed up its invitations to a September media event with updates for its iOS versions of iPhoto, GarageBand, and iMovie on Tuesday. Apple's release notes are slim, but considering the likelihood that we'll get iOS 7 very soon, could include compatibility fixes for the OS upgrade for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The iPhoto 1.1.1 and iMovie 1.4.2 update notes only say they address compatibility issues. The GarageBand 1.4.1 update notes only mention fixes for "minor issues related to general performance and stability."

Apple will be hosting a media event on Tuesday, September 10, where new iPhones are expected. The company promised earlier this year that iOS 7 will be available this fall, and the release date will most likely be announced at the same media event.

With the number leaks that have found their way out of Cupertino and Apple's manufacturing partners, we have a pretty good idea what to expect come next Tuesday. Apple will introduce the iPhone 5S as its top of the line iPhone model, available in black, white or gold, and the iPhone 5C as its brand new midrange model with plastic backs available in several colors.

iPhoto, GarageBand, and iMovie for the iPhone and iPad are priced at US$4.99 each, and are available at Apple's iTunes-based App Store. The updates for all three are free and can be downloaded through the App Store app.



Despite all the leaks, surely Apple has something up its sleeve that hasn’t been revealed? And possibly. . . one more thing?


A new set top box is possible; but more likely an October release.
