If you downloaded GarageBand, iMovie or iPhoto individually from the Mac App Store, load the store by choosing Mac App Store from the Apple menu and hit the Updates tab because Apple has just released free updates to said apps, TUAW reports. Interestingly, people who downloaded and installed the iLife ’11 suite using the restore discs or a physical box purchase cannot yet update their installation because the updated apps haven’t yet to hit Software Update or Apple’s download site. GarageBand 6.0.4, iMovie 9.0.4 and iPhoto 9.1.5 are all available for purchase as standalone products on the Mac App Store, costing fifteen bucks each. Go past the fold for iTunes release notes accompanying each download.
