Talking about the iLife first, it is now 64-bit processor compatible to enhance the user experience on the iPhone 5S. It comes with improved functionality, integrates better with iCloud and brings a slew of new features in the iPhoto, GarageBand and iMovie.

Going by details, the updated iPhoto for Mac and iOS will now ensure faster browsing and editing. iPhoto for iOS will come with a simpler and easier to use new design with new tools and effects as well. It will allow sharing of favorite images in the form of slideshows with gesture controls to pause, rewind and fast forward it.

The new iMovie for Mac and iOS also features some important tweaks and value additions. It speeds up browsing within the library and comes with improved functions. iMovie for Mac now gets some simplified editing tools to make relevant changes in the look of your movie, or add fun effects, and even control the speed of the video. An interesting addition is that iMovie for iOS simplifies editing of videos by using split screen, adding picture-in-picture effects and more. Moreover iMovie Theater will now allow shared clips, movies, and trailers across Apple devices including Apple TV.

The GarageBand app for Mac gets a major update with a fresh look, all new Sound Library, and new features including Drummer and Smart Controls. GarageBand for iOS on the other hand has been updated to utilize 64-bit processor at the utmost. Now users will be able to record third-party music apps right into GarageBand with iOS 7 Inter-App Audio. Moreover they can use AirDrop to wirelessly share songs with other iOS users. Updated GarageBand for Mac and iOS will be available for free for all OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 users. However, those interesting in using additional GarageBand instruments and sounds will have to pay a one-time in-app fee of Rs 270 for each platform.

Talking about the iWork, apart from the design bit, the app is integrated with iCloud and also comes loaded with a number of new features for better productivity and utility of Apple devices. And just like the iLife, iWork is also updated to work with the native apps and work well with the 64-bit processor on the iPhone 5S. The iWork suite will now be available for free with every new Mac or iOS device.

Some of the features in the iWork include a new unified file format for its documents across all Apple devices and iCloud. Moreover it will make creating, editing and sharing of documents easier than before and will feature tools to create better documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Also, the new iWork for iCloud beta will support real-time collaboration to help users create documents on one Apple device while editing it on another. This syncing of the data will work across the iOS and Mac devices.

iWork for Mac will be available for free on the purchase of a new Mac and the current users running Mavericks can update it for free from the Mac App Store. For iOS, the update is available for free from the App Store for any new device on iOS 7. Also, existing users will get free updates as well.
