Launched alongside iPad 2, Apple’s multitouch version of GarageBand has just been updated as a universal app — that’s right, it now supports iPhone and iPod touch as well. GarageBand for iOS is a re-imagining of Apple’s traditional iLife music recording, mixing, and rendering app for their modern mobile platforms.
