Will Apple release iLife ’11 on August 7th?


The rumors around iLife keep getting more intense, a few days ago we reported that several books have started circulating in Amazon shops around the world.

French website Mac4Ever has reported that Apple will lift the curtain on the new iLife on August 7th ,while this date is a Saturday, and we doubt Apple will release news about a product as important as iLife, we still think this rumors are interesting.

The new iLife is rumored to include several updates such as:

All applications will be 64-bit

– Improvements in iPhoto faces & places

– Improving the integration of social networks

– iWeb will be totally renewed

– New application (See below!)

– Disappearance of iDVD

– MobileMe gallery in beta (with faces & places)

Many ponder what the new mystery app could be, according to 9to5Mac the application will be more of an upgrade than a new application, iDVD would be redesigned allowing it to create iTunes LP and iTunes Extras packages, “giving consumers a way to share detailed digital albums featuring all manner of multimedia assets.”

It really is time for an update since the previous iLife ’09 was released in January of 2009, with major upgrades to all of its applications, including the Faces and Places features in iPhoto, and the addition of the Precision Editor to iMovie.
