It took a while, but iMovie got support for the longer screen of the iPhone X. Moreover, the app now works a lot smoother thanks to Metal.
iPhone X Update For iMovie
iMovie is one of the latest apps from Apple itself which is suitable for iPhone X . Thanks to the update, the app runs across the entire screen, without the black bars along the side that you saw before the update. This is convenient, because more screen space is nice when you work on a touchscreen.
With the update, Apple’s widely used apps are finally ready for the iPhone X. Yet iPhone X users still lack support for popular apps. This is how Googles Inbox app still does not work with the longer screen. Also apps such as Nest, Adobe apps and Buienradar still can not handle the screen size of the X.
The latest update for iMovie also adds support for Metal, Apple’s api for graphics performance. With Metal, apps can communicate faster with graphical hardware, which leads to better performance. Editing videos in 4K is no problem on the iPhone X, with this update.
