Apple releases iLife updates

Apple has released updates for its iLife home media creation and management software, which is available both for conventional and Mac App Store installations.

Apple has released a few updates for its iLife suite of media creation and management applications, which have been made available through the Mac App Store as well as by conventional means. Because of the way Mac App Store applications are coded, the version of iLife distributed through it will require updates issued through the store instead of via Software Update. Therefore, if you have installed iLife via the Mac App Store, you will need to use the Store to update your applications, and if you have iLife installed by conventional means then you can download updates either via Software Update or through standalone installers.

Software Update
iLife updates are available through Software Update and the Mac App Store.

The updates contain the following fixes, according to Apple:

iMovie 9.0.4 (76,20MB)

  • [Adds] support for opening projects imported from iMovie for iOS.

  • Addresses an issue that could cause the Photos view to scroll incorrectly when Event Titles are displayed.
  • Fixes a problem that could prevent Ken Burns animations from being applied correctly on photos in a saved Classic slideshow.
  • Deleting photos from a Web album using the contextual menu now removes them from the album without deleting them from the library.
  • Addresses an issue that could prevent a crop adjustment from being removed from a photo when using the Revert to Original command.

GarageBand 6.0.4 (53.72MB)

  • Corrects issues with some tempo-based effects falling out of sync with main song tempo.
