Amazon listing details iLife ‘11 with iOS Apps, 64-bit codebase, iDVD integrated into iMovie

“9 to 5 Mac points to a book listing [Google translation] on Amazon’s German site discussing the as-yet-unreleased iLife ’11 suite,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“The cover artwork and Amazon description for the new book, which is set to launch in December, appear to reveal several features of the next revision of iLife, including the possibility of additional iOS apps beyond the current iMovie offering,” Slivka reports. “In particular, a red ribbon graphic across the top right corner of the book’s cover reads as follows: “iPhoto, iMovie and more with Apps for Mac, iPhone 4, iPod and iPad.”

Slivka reports, “Additional text as automatically translated in the book’s description claims a number of other features, including a 64-bit codebase, iWeb revamp, and the disappearance of iDVD.”

MacDailyNews Note: Actually, 9 to 5 Mac’s article states that “iDVD is also listed as part of the iMovie App even though some had written if off for dead.”

  1. I make DVDs for my granny, aunts and uncles, and family without fast broadband connections.

    I send them shiny discs that they can stick in their players and they “just work”. Not everyone in the real world has a computer and can stream video, and those that can know that most streaming video is much poorer quality than DVD.

    I’ve used Macs since 1984, but I am getting bored of this “you don’t need that” attitude … Steve Jobs says DVD is history and iDVD goes from iLife.

    Thanks, not, Macs are supposed to make my life easier — now I am going to have to research new dedicated software, etc. Not happy with this move.

    I’ve also wanted to burn Blu-rays for a while — all my camcorders have been HD for years, even my iPhone 4 is HD for goodness sake — but I cannot make optical discs for my players. Pathetic.

  3. @ I Can HAZ DVD

    You can still burn DVDs Moron. it’s built into iMovie now.

    Maybe you should read before you spew crap. And you should wipe afterwards.

  5. The cover of the book says:

    “iPhoto, iMovie und mehr!
    Mit apps für Mac, iPhone 4, iPod und iPad!”

    In other words, all these applications, available for Mac, as well as iOS.

    The message implies that Apple is porting the other components of the iLife over to the iOS. Could it be that we’ll be seeing iWeb and Garageband on the iPad soon…?

  7. This makes sense to me. One thing that I have been expecting for a while is to bring the owners of Mac and iLife the ability to create their own apps. Not for store submission but to be able to add and create their own widget style apps for use on iOS devices. I believe this could replace dashboard. Small apps instead of widgets. The ability to run iOS apps in place of widgets would be awesome as well.
