Apple went on an updating spree on Wednesday for several of its apps, including GarageBand, iMovie, Clips and iWork, which includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote. The iMovie and iWork apps have been updated on both iOS and MacOS, while Apple updated GarageBand and Clips only for iOS.
Here are some of the changes you can expect once you're up to date:
- GarageBand for iOS now supports keyboard commands when using a Smart Keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard. It also adds Wah stompbox pedal and Face Control to Smart Guitar
- iMovie for Mac removed the share directly to Facebook option, and instead lets you export a Facebook-ready file that you can upload manually
- iMovie for iOS lets you connect an external display to your iPad or iPhone and lets you mirror the display or preview your video while editing
- Clips for iOS has new Selfie Scenes, which let you take photos and videos of yourself superimposed on a variety of still and animated backgrounds
- Pages for MacOS and iOS lets you publish your books directly to Apple Books for download or purchase
- The Keynote and Numbers update for MacOS and iOS bring various performance and stability improvements
You can update these apps or read Apple's version history notes in the iOS App Store and Mac App Store.
