Apple has posted an updated version of iMovie 10, the new version of iMovie for Mac that was released last month. iMovie 10.0.1 is a maintenance update that's available through Software Update, via the Mac App Store.
Apple has recently made some pretty big changes when it comes to its iMovie application for iOS. It recently got an overhaul for iOS 7, but perhaps more importantly for more people, iMovie went free – at least for anyone buying a new iOS device, anyway. That's particularly important because it opens up a whole new audience, those who might not have been willing to drop $4.99 on a video editor for their iPhone or iPad.
With iMovie for iOS going free with the purchase of a new iOS 7 device, you might be tempted into taking a look at it for the very first time. While iMovie is a universal app for iPhone and iPad, let's face it, if you've just bought a new iPad Air or will be picking up a Retina iPad mini later on this month, that larger display is where it's at for editing your own movies.
If you picked up a shiny new iPad Air today, be sure to drop by the App Store and download the free iLife and iWork applications from Apple! Recently made free with the purchase of a new iOS device, the collection of Apple applications is a great way to add productivity and creativity to your new iPad. And of course, with iCloud integration you get to share your content with respective applications on your Mac and iPhone.
iMovie, like all of Apple's iLife (and iWork) apps, received a substantial makeover to coincide with iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks. Whether you've been using iMovie for a while, or are just coming to it now, Serenity Caldwell has put together a fantastic list of tips to help you ramp up on the new version. Macworld:
We've gotten a bunch of messages from readers who originally bought iWork or iLife back when they were still sold on disk in boxes - yeah, you know, the dark ages - saying the Mac App Store is now properly offering them free updates to the new versions. Yesterday, for the same people, the updates were still listed at $19.99 a piece, so it looks like Apple's been fixing things overnight.
Apple's making it easier than ever to share movies you create in iMovie with a new feature called iMovie Theater. Introduced at Tuesday's Apple Event, iMovie Theater is one of many updates that Apple has incorporated into its iLife apps. Now Apple has updated the Apple TV with a new iMovie Theater channel so you can view your iMovies.
As shown at the Apple Event earlier in the day, Apple late on Tuesday released updated iWorks and iLife apps for iOS. Those include Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand - all updated to version 2.0.
Apple is now giving away its iOS iWorks, iPhoto and iMovie apps to customers who activate new iOS 7 devices; the plan was announced during Apple's September event when the company unveiled the iPhone 5c and 5s. Apple rolled back the eligibility period to September 1st. For those customers who were caught in that week and a half period, Apple's now issuing iTunes Store credits.
