Apple has released small updates to iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand, addressing compatibility issues within iPhoto and iMovie and minor performance issues in GarageBand.

While it is unclear what the compatibility update fixes, it is likely related to Apple's upcoming iOS 7 operating system, which has been available for developers since June 10.

iOS 7 introduces a number of design changes along with features like a revamped Notification Center and a new Control Panel. Apple's apps will likely get larger iOS 7 updates after the OS is released later this month.

While Apple is expected to feature iOS 7 during its September 10 iPhone event, the operating system will likely be provided to the public shortly before Apple’s new iPhones are released on September 20.

All three of the apps can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99.

Mindboggling that iPhoto for iOS and iPhoto for Mac don't sync across iCloud.

I was waiting for the iOS7 update to fix this. Looks like Apple still don't get it.

What ever happened with the rumor that the iLife apps would become free with the release of iOS 7? I'm still looking forward to that possibility...

I think the rumor was that iWork apps would be free since there are now free versions of those apps on iCloud.

I was hoping for an updated iOS 7 style icon. It couldn't have gotten worse.
The icons will be updated when iOS 7 is released (or shortly after).
