Clips is a free app that lets you make fun videos to share with friends and family. With a few taps you can create and send a video message or tell a quick story with artistic filters, animated text, music, emoji, and fun stickers featuring characters from Star Wars, Disney, Pixar and more. The new features are four additional Live Title styles featuring new fonts, colors, and layouts, four new animated labels with vibrant colors and editable text, nine new animated stickers including hand-drawn arrows, scribbles, circles, and underlining, eleven new Apple-designed posters for creating animated title cards, including education-themed blackboard and notebook designs, two new Selfie Scenes on iPhone X from Disney and Pixar that put you in the “Finding Dory” reef and on the Scare Floor from “Monsters, Inc.”
Also drop shadows have been added to some labels to improve visibility against light backgrounds, Fixes an issue that could prevent photos stored in iCloud Photo Library from displaying correctly in Clips projects with improved stability when deleting projects.
GarageBand turns your iPhone into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio so you can make music anywhere you go. There are Live Loops, that makes it easy for anyone to have fun creating music like a DJ. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and create beats that make you sound like a pro.
