Rumor has iPhoto '12 in summer, based on iOS app

updated 01:30 pm EDT, Tue April 24, 2012

iCloud, iOS links may be core elements

iPhoto '12 will be released for the Mac this summer, and carry heavy influence from the recently-launched iOS app, according to sources for a Dutch-language website, Apple Weetjes. This includes retouching functions, and the ability to quickly transfer photos from iOS devices running iPhoto. Users will also allegedly be able to publish an album to iCloud, replacing the current Mac software's option to publish a MobileMe gallery.

The new app is expected to require OS X Lion or Mountain Lion, completely losing support for Snow Leopard. The last major update of iPhoto took place in 2010, making it and the rest of the iLife suite due for an upgrade. Apple could time a release with the launch of Mountain Lion and/or new Macs, both of which are expected this summer.

    @Sierra Dragon

    "weetjes" is Dutch for "facts".

    And I agree it's safe to guess the iLife suite will see an update this summer, especially with MobileMe being shut down and some functionality of iPhoto and iMovie needing to be adapted. But I doubt they'll call it "iPhoto '12" etc., it's too late in the year for that. When iLife '08 was introduced, it was early August... of 2007.

    Question is: will Apple dare to go for the "13"? :)
