Updates introduced alongside new iPad

Apple has finally brought iPhoto to the iPad, while introducing updates to the existing iMovie, iWork and GarageBand apps. The apps, introduced alongside the new iPad, have been reworked to take advantage of the third-generation tablet's 2048x1536 'Retina Display', which quadruples the pixel density from the 1024x768 display of the original iPad and iPad 2.

iPhoto takes from its desktop counterpart, but adds multi-touch browsing and editing capabilities. Users can manipulate photos with brushes, including a repair brush and red-eye removal tools, while tilt-shift and watercolor are among the available effects.

The photo utility offers a Photo Journal feature for creating collections of highlighted photos, with options for adding captions or focusing on favorits. Users can also utilize EXIF data, add geotags and edit images up to 19 megapixels in size.

iMovie also takes advantage of the latest hardware, enabling users to edit 1080p videos captured from the new iPad's camera. The video editing utility also adds new storyboard and editing tools, while a Theater view provides a preview with several different templates.

iWork brings a new note editor and new 3D bar, line, area and pie charts, while Keynote adds several new transitions. GarageBand has also been improved, enabling users to jam wirelessly using three iOS devices and record as a group. Other enhancements include a new note editor, iCloud sync and a Smart Strings touch-based instrument.

All of the updates will be available later today in the App Store, while the new iPhoto app will be listed for $5.
