Apple pushes out iMovie updates on iPadOS, iOS, and macOS


Following the update to Final Cut Pro X, Apple has also pushed out updates for iMovie for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

The iPhone and iPad version of iMovie has updated to 2.2.10, and now features three new filters, 25 new soundtracks, and a few bug fixes to improve stability and performance. The App Store release notes read:
  • Give your videos a hand-drawn look with 3 new filters: Comic, Comic Mono and Ink

  • Choose from 25 new soundtracks -- in genres including action, chill, and sentimental -- that automatically adjust to match the length of your movie

  • Addresses an issue that could prevent the viewer from updating after duplicating a photo in the timeline

  • Improves reliability of Redo when editing a trailer

  • Includes performance and stability improvements
For those on macOS, iMovie (version 10.1.15) has five new filters, a support patch for iOS projects that use the filters mentioned above, and stability improvements. The release notes are as follows:
  • Add a hand-drawn look to your movies with 5 new filters: Comic, Comic Mono, Comic Vintage, Comic Sepia and Ink

  • Import iMovie for iOS projects with support for Comic, Comic Mono and Ink filters

  • Improves overall stability
iMovie is available for free to anyone who owns an iPad, iPhone, Mac, or MacBook, and can be downloaded on the iOS App Store and the macOS App Store.

    iMovie now requires macOS 10.15.6, leaving out those that prefer using Mojave.

    Yes. Yes, it does.

    This is in no way out of the ordinary for new iMovie releases, and doesn't make the previous version (or, for that matter, Mojave) stop working, You can carry on exactly as you were (unless you were planning on using one of the new features) for an indeterminate amount of time going forward -- at minimum three years. Then you'll probably want to/need to move on.

    Twas ever thus, and ever will be.

    And yet iMovie iOS still doesn’t understand video shot in portrait orientation.

    As someone who prefers classical cinema story telling and as a filmmaker, why people will ever want to shoot video in portrait mode is beyond me.
