Should arrive in parallel with new Macs
iLife '09 listings at the US and German Amazon websites may back the notion that iLife '11 will be announced on Wednesday. At the US page, hovering a cursor over the Amazon entry under "More Buying Choices" reveals a two- to four-week shipping delay. At Amazon.de the same action mentions availability on October 20th, the same day as a special Apple press event.
An updated iLife is expected alongside new Macs, in particular a redesigned MacBook Air. The software may itself include some significant rumored changes, such as 64-bit code, the merging of iMovie and iDVD, and a rewritten iWeb utility. Earlier reports hinted that iDVD might disappear as a default application.
