Adds support for HDMI output, more
Apple has updated two of its most popular iOS apps, with iMovie for the iPad 2, iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod Touch being updated to v1.2.1, and Garageband for iPad getting a significant boost in features with v1.0.1. Both now support audio playing to HDTVs through the Apple Digital AV Adapter, with iMovie also now being able to play full screen from Marquee using the adapter. Garageband also gains audio output over Airplay, HDMI and Bluetooth devices.
The 1.2.1 update of iMovie also resolves an issue with missing media in some projects, provides more accurate clip grouping by date in the Video browser, and fixes an issue where a project's background music would not fade in and out properly.
Garageband 1.0.1 now allows import of AIFF, WAV and CAF audio files as well as 16-bit, 44.1kHz Apple Loops. Copying and pasting of audio from supported apps into Garageband is now supported, and an issue of Garageband freezing when playing Smart Instruments has been fixed. Additionally, both updates provide overall reliability and performance enhancements.
Existing installs can be updated by re-visiting the App Store on the mobile device in question and checking for updates.
