iMovie for iPhone updated with compatibility for….iPhone 6 and iPhone 7? [UPDATE: Back to iPhone 5]


[UPDATE: Apple’s clearly spotted its error thanks to the hype. iMovie’s compatibility only extends up to iPhone 5 now. Confusion can stop.] 

If you head on over to the iTunes page for iMovie for iPhone (and others, according to The Verge), you’ll notice that down in the compatibility, it doesn’t have the usual “optimized for iPhone 5” in the bottom. In fact, it says iPhone 6. That’s interesting, seeing as the two devices we are expecting to come on Tuesday are the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, not the iPhone 6. However, you never know until it is announced…here is the full text:

Compatibility: Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch, and iPad. This app is optimized for iPhone 6

iPhone 6? This is the first we have seen iPhone 6 being tossed around, instead of the highly expected iPhone 5S name. Now, as iMore points out, there are a few different explanations for something like this. People can make mistakes; what if it is just a typo? Someone could easily have mistyped 6 instead of 5. But it’d be harder to type 6 instead of 5S, so who knows. Also, things get leaked, so it is possible the the rumored 5S will in fact be the iPhone 6. Another possibility that I hadn’t thought of is that, Apple does have a sense of humor to it. A while back we saw strings for devices like the “iPhone10,1” and “iPad 8,1” etc in an iOS beta release, so it could just be another one of those.

Supposedly this is showing up on pages for iMovie, Pages, iPhoto, Keynote, and more applications in the App Store. Also pointed out by The Verge is that on the New Zealand website we are seeing “iPhone 7” instead of iPhone 6, so this could actually be a humorous stunt by Apple after all (see below image).

    This could also mean that the rumoured plastic iphone (5C) will actually be the 5S and the new rumoured 5S will actually be called the iphone 6.

    @tdgenduo I agree with you. That would make sense.  What kind of backlash would it cause if they called it Iphone 6 with same exact design as Iphone 5?  One thing that ive been curious about and maybe I just missed it is I have not seen any leaks of the display.  We seen the back, insides but not one single display leak.  Could some of the rumors be true that it will be 4.2 inch display?  Probably not but I think its interesting we have not seen any display leaks if there have been a lot then I just missed it.

    Jumping to conclusions springs to mind. In UK store it says optimised for iphone 5.
    Ita clearly a typo but you keep making up what you want in your heads, there are plenty that will believe you.

  • Keithuk

    What a joke, its a typo and you fall for this?

  • Tonybabo

    they have sinced changed it back to going up to iphone 5

  • TC2B

    Why would apple post something that most everybody wants (newer bigger and better iPhone 6) only to disappoint them with a questionable humor. I think there would be a huge backlash by their customers. I’m leaning towards the iPhone 6 release.

    @Keithuk Nobody was falling for anything. The post was published merely to bring up the subject and found out people’s thoughts.

  • Tonybabo

    @TC2B I actually think them changing it back says more about it then anything. I think there something more going on. Maybe all these leaks of iPhone 5s and 5c are planned. Maybe the 5C is a iPod touch and the 5S is the iPhone lite. All while keeping there true unveiling secret!!!! I will buy that.

  • jaysonclydegozon

    I look on the Apple site and its iPhone 5. I think that was just a Mistake by Apple?!

  • Kourage2

    This was a typo. I checked the App Store. Please kill the iPhone 6 rumors guys.
