    GarageBand for iOS

    Clips has received a wide range of new fonts, colors, layouts, animated labels and stickers, title cards with education-themed designs, and more, all of which provides students and teachers with more creative flexibility to prepare video presentations and lessons using the app on the new 9.7-inch iPad.

    The full release notes for Clips version 2.0.3: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-Pixar that put you in the "Finding Dory" reef and on the Scare Floor from "Monsters, Inc."
    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
    Improved stability when deleting projects
    Likewise, GarageBand has received new educational sound effects, including animals, vehicles, and counting to ten in different languages.

    The full release notes for GarageBand for iOS version 2.3.3:New downloadable "Toy Box" sound pack with free educational sound effects, including animals, vehicles, and counting to ten in different languages.
    Use facial expressions and the TrueDepth camera for hands-free control over musical effects like guitar wah and synth parameters*
    Adds Modern Wah guitar stompbox effect
    Provides stability improvements and bug fixes
    * Apple's fine print: "Requires iPhone X. GarageBand uses ARKit face tracking features to translate your facial expressions into instrument effect controls. Your face information is processed on device, and only music is captured during your performance."

    The updates to Clips and GarageBand are rolling out on the App Store today. The apps are free to download on iPhone and iPad.

    Does clips still only allow you to create videos in a square crop?

    Would probably get a lot more users if you could produce videos for IG stories.

    The ARkit integration within Garageband iOS is interesting, I am surprised nobody is covering this feature more in depth!
    I cannot find in the app where this feature can be accessed. Anyone find it?

    Can't find it either - though I haven't used GarageBand on iOS for a long time so not overly familiar with the interface.

    You can add square photos/videos to your Insta Story.

    I'm still waiting on an iMovie update for iPhone X...
