iMovie for iOS Gains Support for iPhone X Display and Adopts Metal for Graphics Processing

by John_A

iMovie for iOS was today updated to version 2.2.5, introducing long-awaited support for the full screen edge-to-edge display of the iPhone X.

Along with iPhone X display support, today’s update also adopts Metal for graphics processing, and it improves overall stability. Apple says installing the new version of iMovie requires iOS 11.2 or later.

What’s New
– Updated for Super Retina display on iPhone X
– Adopts Metal for graphics processing
– Improves localization for Simplified Chinese
– Improves overall stability

This version of iMovie requires iOS 11.2

Since the iPhone X launched in November, iMovie was one of the major Apple apps that had not been updated with support for the new display, forcing iMovie users to deal with black bars on their flagship devices.

Thankfully, with the update, the iMovie app now displays properly on the iPhone X. Several other Apple apps have yet to be updated with iPhone X support, including iTunes Connect, iTunes Remote, Beats Pill+, Music Memos, and AirPort Utility.

iMovie for iOS version 2.2.5 comes just a few days after Apple released an update for the Mac version of iMovie with support for iPhone X resolutions for app previews and a number of bug fixes.
