We really expected a refreshed version of iLife to show up at last Wednesday’s media event, even though announcements were flying fast and furious as it was. If a new product listing on is to be believed, maybe we won’t have to wait much longer.

9to5Mac is reporting that has a new product listing for “iLife ’11 Family Pack,” currently listed at .00 with a ship time of two to four weeks. The fact that a new version of iLife is coming isn’t particularly newsworthy by itself, but does Amazon know something that we don’t?

It’s a given at this point that iLife ’09 will likely be followed by iLife ’11 since it’s too late in the 2010 calendar year for “iLife ’10” to make sense as a name, but given that Apple has not uttered a word about a new version makes the product listing sort of head-scratching.

Back in July, Amazon France listed both iLife ’10 for Dummies and iWork ’10 for Dummies on their website briefly, with availability in September and October, respectively — although in this case, the Amazon listing for the iLife ’11 product appears on the main U.S. site.

There has been plenty of speculation about what a new version of iLife might bring, including iTunes LP and iTunes Extras creation abilities added to iDVD, which circled the rumor mill in December of last year.

The strangest part about the iLife ’11 Family Pack on Amazon is that it’s apparently been listed since July 27 (according to the Product Details on the site) and we’re only discovering it now…
