Tuesday's update to iMovie provides new soundtracks, new filters, bug fixes, and stability improvements for Mac, iOS, and iPadOS users.
When you update to the latest version of iMovie for macOS from iMovie versions 7, 8, or 9, you’ll need to update your existing iMovie projects and events. You can either automatically update projects and events when you first open iMovie, or you can manually update projects and events later. Every Apple fan knows how useful iMovie is when it comes to creating your own videos. The program gives Mac users an easy-to-use yet powerful video maker – and it’s already built into their machine. Unfortunately, Apple developers have not provided a way to download iMovie for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista.
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
Latest Imovie Version
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:
Imovie Version 11

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.
