    iMovie for iOS was today updated to version 2.2.7, adding a long list of new features to the video editing app for the iPhone and the iPad.

    The update brings a new green screen effect that lets you remove the background of clips shot in front of a green or blue screen, a neat new feature for quickly swapping in a new background.

    Still images with transparent backgrounds, such as logos or graphics, can be inserted on top of your video, and photos can be used as overlays to create picture-in-picture and split-screen effects.

    Apple has added 80 new soundtracks across genres that include pop, chill, sentimental, and more, all of which automatically adjust to match the length of your video.

    Apple has removed the ability to share to iMovie Theater, and all movies and trailers are now saved to iCloud Photos to watch them on other devices.

    There are also a few other minor tweaks and bug fixes, with Apple's full release notes below:
    The iMovie for iOS app is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    Wow this sound library is awesome. About d@mn time Apple put some effort into updating a neglected iMovie. If only they could add the ability to reverse footage, stabilize footage, as well as make exporting 4K 60FPS a selectable feature, that’d be great...

    This app seemed to have a ton of bugs around audio import. Since I moved to Apple Music and use way less of my Match collection, everything is DRMd away from use in iMovie. It’s pretty annoying, particularly because YouTube now seems to handle most copyrighted music with ads that benefit the publisher.

    So I’m not surprised they added a ton of music because it was incredibly limited before.

    This is great, love using iMovie to edit videos and to quickly throw projects together. These new features will be welcomed.

    If you can figure out how... let me know... .png are greyed out in Files... and when imported to photos they lose their transparency.

    They removed Theater. Hahaha. It stopped working in iMovie on Mavericks, so it's gone anyway. Irony is ringing.
