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.

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.

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.
