iLife is a software suite for macOS and iOS developed by Apple Inc. It consists of various programs for media creation, organization, editing and publishing. It was composed of: iTunes, iMovie, iPhoto, iDVD, iWeb and GarageBand. With the exception of iTunes (which was separated from iLife at an earlier point) only iMovie and GarageBand remain and are sold separately on Apple's Mac App Store. iDVD and iWeb have been discontinued and iPhoto has been succeeded by Photos.

iLife is preinstalled on new Mac computers and was sold as a bundle on DVD. With the introduction of the Mac App Store, Apple sold the programs separately and eventually discontinued the DVD altogether. iMovie and GarageBand remain free with the purchase of any new Mac computer or iOS device. Upgrades to the new versions from past App Store versions are currently a free upgrade for any user in comparison to past versions pre-App Store where the entire suite has to be purchased.
