Apple’s new iMovie 3.0 update for iPhone and iPad has a major new Storyboards feature designed to make it easier to create videos in the app using pre-made templates.
The app offers 20 different templates for many types of videos, “including cooking tutorials, Q&As, product reviews, news reports and more”, Apple says in a press release† Storyboards will include recording lists, an “illustrative thumbnail” and suggestions for recording a clip, according to release.
The new update also adds a feature Apple calls Magic Movie, which can create videos from photos or images on the fly. “To create a Magic Movie, a user simply selects an album, or a group of photos or images from their library, and Magic Movie immediately identifies the best parts of the footage and creates the project,” Apple says. Users can rearrange or delete clips as they wish.
The iMovie 3.0 update is now available for devices running iOS and iPadOS 15.2 or later. Apple had teased these new features in March†
