Apple has finally released an update of iMovie for iOS adding support for the iPhone X. In addition to now being optimized for the Super Retina display on Apple’s flagship iPhone, the updated version also now uses Apple’s Metal framework for graphics processing. iMovie for iOS is one of the last of Apple’s own apps to gain iPhone X support — six months after the debut of the iPhone itself — and it’s also somewhat surprising that it’s taken this long for support for Apple’s own Metal framework — unveiled in 2014 and updated last June — to also arrive in the iOS version of iMovie. The update also notably requires iOS 11.2 or later.
