Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro Now Available on iPad
Apple has finally brought its popular video editing suite and music production program to the iPad. Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro are now available on iPads with M1 processors or higher.
Reason for the Early Announcement
The announcement was made before WWDC 2023 to give Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro their own time in the spotlight, and to counter the release of Google’s Pixel Tablet, which might be a competitor to the iPad, at Google I/O.
