iLife 11 Release Date is November?
The big mystery of when iLife ’11 will be released just may have been solved. An iLife ’11 book has been discovered on the UK Amazon store that lists its ship date as November of this year, which would be a fitting time to release the iLife ’11 software package as well since selling a book about software that doesn’t exist makes little sense.
The book is actually written in German, but the translation from 9to5mac reads as follows: “iPhoto, iMovie and more with apps for Mac, iPhone 4, iPod and iPad.”
An additional item on the Amazon UK store shows an iMovie ’11 guide that lists iDVD as part of the new iMovie app, this is interesting because iDVD has been assumed to have been abandoned by Apple.
The release date of iLife ’11 has been speculated at several times this year, with most of the claims surrounding earlier this summer. It even briefly appeared on the Amazon bestselling Mac software list before disappearing from the Amazon US site. A November release date makes sense if the new software is to be included in the holiday shopping season.
The desktop software package currently rests at iLife ’09, which was released in January of 2009, and has not been updated since. Rather amusingly, if you do an Amazon search for iLife ’11 your top result will currently be iLife 1.1, which was released in 2003.
