Apple Offering 90-Day Free Trials for Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X

Apple is offering new free trial options for Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X, its video and audio editing software designed for professional projects, giving customers 90 days to try them out prior to a purchase.

The new longer trial options will be beneficial to those who are working from home, including students who are no longer able to work in a classroom environment, and those who are looking to try learning a new skill. The 90-day free trial options are available to all customers around the world.

Prior to now, Final Cut Pro X had a 30-day free trial, while Logic Pro X had no free trial option at all, so this will be a welcome change for everyone who has wanted to try out Logic Pro X before making a purchase. The 90-day extension period will be available for a limited time, reverting back to 30 days in the future. The free trial options are available for both new customers and those who have already downloaded the prior 30-day free trial of Final Cut Pro X.

The 90-day free trial for Final Cut Pro X is available now, while the free trial for Logic Pro X will be available in a few days. The free trial options can be downloaded from Apple's dedicated websites for Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X.

I’d like to see Apple bundle its pro software into a subscription, or even include it with an iCloud plan. (i.e. a 1TB plan could include Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X.)

If Apple’s Pro applications were available on iPad Pro I’d purchase one to supplement or even replace my MacBook Pro. As it is now it’s lacking a few key applications that would justify a purchase for me. The new MacBook Air is tempting, but I foresee myself eventually replacing my Mac with an iPad.
Wtf? Subscriptions is one of the worst things ever invented!

For those in education, this entire suite is only $199 - https://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop/product/BMGE2Z/A/pro-apps-bundle-for-education

Great deal for those who weren't aware.

90 day free trial is great. It's long enough to really get into a program and learn it and become addicted to it if it's a great one. It's not like the extra 60 free days eats into future sales

I think Apple should have continued to develop Aperture just to have a complete the end to end workflow experience. They should also kept adding to their professional portfolio of apps for Illustration and Image editing (QuarkXpress, Affinity Photo and Corel Draw). There are many offshelf brands they could buy and bring in house to help keep Adobe in line. Remember, the reason why Apple even bought the original developers of Final Cut and Logic was the fear of abandonment by third party devs. Steve Jobs made the strategic decision after spending 14 million to buying these pro creative apps to kill the Windows versions. With Adobe also being available on Windows, many creatives can easily switch platforms, unless you really love macOS and the hardware tax that much.

Nice!

I already use it, but it would be great to see some posts from people that were hesitant at the price tag get to try it in depth and keep it.

Subscription is one reason I would not buy/use Premiere. Final Cut is already really cheap compared to one year of premier payments.

I do agree that there needs to be an iPad version, seems like it should have happened already.
