Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro Are Coming to the iPad

Apple surprised us today with a big announcement: Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro are finally coming to the iPad.

You can get all the details in our full coverage of the announcement at our Mission Control blog post, but here’s the nitty gritty:

  • Both apps will launch May 23, 2023
  • Instead of a one-time purchase, both Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad will be subscription based, priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
  • They are fully-featured professional apps reimagined for the iPad’s portability and multi-touch interface
  • Because of that reimagining, both apps bring new features and functionalities.
  • iPads supported: Final Cut Pro essentially requires an iPad with no less than an M1 processor, while Logic Pro requires the older A12 Bionic.

This announcement will definitely make many iPad Pro users out there very happy as these apps are aimed specifically at creative professionals looking to make the most out of their mobile workstation. But it’s definitely a bit of surprise too. With WWDC only a month away, it’s interesting that Apple didn’t save this announcement for that keynote.

But maybe that just means the WWDC 2023 keynote was too jam-packed. Either way, exciting stuff. Be sure to read all about Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad in our Mission Control post.

  • They KILLED It! “Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad will each be available on the App Store for $4.99 (US) per month or $49 (US) per year with a one-month free trial”. $50 a year! No Way!!!! I just canceled my Adobe subscription because I was tired of paying over $60 a month for software I only used for one client. All the others, I use FCP or Resolve Studio both of which I have paid $300, ONCE. I will stick for travel FCP using my trusty MacBook Air M1 which I already own. Wven though I have a iPad Pro M2, I can always use Resolve on it as it was a free download. Hope it stays that way.

    • This is honestly a red flag. I’m a heavy Logic Pro user, and I was always amazed at how Apple has managed to give us such a robust piece of software, and be this affordable also with regular updates and improvements. I knew this was too good to be true long term, and I fear this might soon come to the mac.

    • Ugh! I hate subscriptions! Happy that these applications are coming to the iPad, but BOO to subscription software!
