Apple is applying the final flourishes to its next iteration of its popular iLife suite of creative software.

A report claims the new breed iLife suite is at Golden Master phase, and speculates the software may ship before Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, which is scheduled to be released from its cage in October.

The new version of iLife will run on both Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5, but there's no word yet on whether it will be re-branded in order to lose its reference to the year of release, the report states.
