All designed to work better with iCloud and new hi-def devices.
Apple's updates to its core software apps are never quite as dramatic as its unveiling of new devices, but they're still pretty significant.
Last night, it introduced iPhoto for iPad and iPhone and major updates to iMovie and GarageBand, completing its suite of iLife apps for iOS.
iPhoto now includes multi-touch features for speedier browsing and the ability to enhance and retouch images using fingertip brushes. Users can also post photos to Facebook, Flickr and Twitter, and beam photos between iPhone and iPad; stream them to Apple TV with AirPlay; and use iCloud to publish photo journals to the web.
The new iMovie offers the ability to generate Hollywood-style trailers in HD video on iPad and iPhone, share them to YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook, and use AirPlay to stream them to Apple TV in high definition resolutions up to 1080p.
Meanwhile GarageBand introduces Jam Session, which allows a group of friends to wirelessly connect their iOS devices to play instruments and record live music together.
iPhoto, iMovie 1.3 and GarageBand 1.2 are available now for £2.99 each from the App Store.
Apple also updates iOS. Its version 5.1 addressed battery life issues and introduced support for the Japanese language with Siri. There was also an updated Camera app for iPad more fixes including:
* Genius Mixes and Genius playlists for iTunes Match subscribers
* Audio for TV on iPad to sound louder and clearer
* Podcast controls for playback speed and a 30-second rewind for iPad
