iMovie for iOS was today
updated to version 2.2.5, introducing long-awaited support for
the full screen edge-to-edge display of the iPhone X.

Along with iPhone X display support, today’s update also adopts
Metal for graphics processing, and it improves overall
stability. Apple says installing the new version of iMovie
requires iOS 11.2 or later.

What’s New
– Updated for Super Retina display on iPhone X
– Adopts Metal for graphics processing
– Improves localization for Simplified Chinese
– Improves overall stability

This version of iMovie requires iOS 11.2

Since the iPhone X launched in November, iMovie was

one of the major Apple apps that had not been updated with
support for the new display, forcing iMovie users to deal with
black bars on their flagship devices.

Thankfully, with the update, the iMovie app now displays
properly on the iPhone X. Several other Apple apps have yet to
be updated with iPhone X support, including iTunes Connect,
iTunes Remote, Beats Pill+, Music Memos, and AirPort Utility.

iMovie for iOS version 2.2.5 comes just a few days after Apple
an update for the Mac version of iMovie with support for
iPhone X resolutions for app previews and a number of bug
