iLife 10 Coming in September?

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Rumor

Listener Gary just emailed me to let me know that he was browsing Amazon and ran across a listing on their French site that looks to be an “iLife ’10 for Dummies” book. The description doesn’t really reveal anything about any new features, but the entry does have a September 23rd, 2010 release. Listings like this do “leak” from time to time and they may or may not be confirmation of a software update. It’s seems logical to assume Apple has been working on an update to the iLife suite. So will we see a new iLife this Fall?

Until it’s removed, here is the link to the listing on the French Amazon.com site.
