  • Fixes an issue that could prevent photos stored in iCloud Photo Library from displaying correctly in Clips projects

  • Improved stability when deleting projects

Likewise, GarageBand has received new educational sound effects, including animals, vehicles, and counting to ten in different languages.

The full release notes for GarageBand for iOS version 2.3.3:
