It’s official! Apple has finally decided to bring the heavyweight video editing software, Final Cut Pro, to the iPad Pro. And that’s not all – Logic Pro, the renowned digital audio workstation, is tagging along for the ride. Mark your calendars for May 23rd because that’s when both apps hit the App Store, ready to turn your iPad Pro into a creative powerhouse.
There’s a catch: while the iPad Pro is inching closer to becoming a true productivity tool, Final Cut Pro faces some stiff competition from other software that has already adopted AI functions, but can it keep up with the evolving landscape of AI-powered software?
The iPad versions of Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro are now available for subscription at a cost of $4 per month or $49 for an annual subscription.
Final Cut Pro is compatible with iPads that are equipped with the M1 chip or a newer version.
Similarly, Logic Pro is optimized for iPads that are powered by the A12 Bionic chip or a later version.
Final Cut Pro
For those unfamiliar, Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing software that first saw the light of day under Macromedia before Apple took the reins. It’s been a staple for professional video editors and content creators for years.
Logic Pro, on the other hand, is a digital audio workstation and MIDI sequencer software tailor-made for the Mac platform. It was originally developed by German software developer Emagic, which Apple acquired in 2002. Since then, it’s been a key component of Apple’s Logic Studio – their professional-grade music software suite.
Addition of Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro to the iPad Pro lineup is undoubtedly a leap forward for Apple iPad.
Only time will tell if Apple’s move to bring Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro to the iPad Pro will be enough to keep them competitive in this ever-changing landscape. But one thing’s for sure: these apps have the potential to unlock a new world of creative possibilities for iPad Pro users, and that’s something to get excited about.
So, buckle up, creative types! The iPad Pro is about to become a one-stop-shop for all your video editing and audio production needs.
