Many hoped and speculated that Apple’s latest media-suite, iLife ’11, would be re-written to work in 64 bit. As Gear Live notes, this is sadly not the case. If you look at the screenshot of the Mac Activity Monitor above, you will notice that the ’64 bit’ marker is not present next to both iMovie ’11 and iPhoto ’11. The same apparently goes for Garageband ’11. We are not really sure why Apple chose not to go 64 bit with iLife ’11 seeing that Snow Leopard is fully 64 bit compatible. On the other hand they need something besides new slideshows and video effects for iLife ’12 or ’13, right?
