When to Expect Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro to Launch on iPad Tomorrow

As previously announced, Apple will be launching Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for select iPad models on Tuesday, May 23. Apple says the apps are optimized for the iPad's touch-first interface, and more details are available in our earlier coverage.

Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad will likely be released on the App Store around 1 p.m. Eastern Time, based on our analysis of Apple's regional websites. Some media outlets and YouTubers received early access to the apps, and Apple's embargo for reviews will be lifting tomorrow, providing a closer look at the apps in action.

While the apps have one-time pricing on the Mac, the iPad versions will have subscription-based pricing only. Both apps will be priced at $4.99 per month or $49 per year in the U.S. after a one-month free trial. Final Cut Pro is compatible with iPad models equipped with the M1 chip or later, and Logic Pro will be available for iPad models equipped with the A12 Bionic chip or later. Both apps require iPadOS 16.4 or later.

"Final Cut Pro for iPad introduces a powerful set of tools for video creators to record, edit, finish, and share, all from one portable device," said Apple's announcement from earlier this month. "Logic Pro for iPad puts the power of professional music creation in the hands of the creator — no matter where they are — with a complete collection of sophisticated tools for songwriting, beat making, recording, editing, and mixing."

Apple has dedicated Final Cut Pro for iPad and Logic Pro for iPad pages with more details, and we will have our own hands-on coverage of the apps soon.

Can we ever see a day where both software is purchased in perpetuity rather than on subscription?

If companies go the one-time-purchase route, then everyone will whine about forced obsolescence when new features are reserved for paid updates and support is cut for old versions after a few years. Premium software is going to cost you one way or another. Developer's don’t work for charity.

yeahhhhh can't wait! Subscription or not this is great news. If it wasn't for the subscription model I'd probably never be able to try/use it.

I feel like once every year or so I need to edit some content and I want to try Final Cut Pro so bad instead of iMovie, but could never fork out that much money in case I don't like it. So with the subscription, I'm out of pocket $5 if I don't like it. So yea, I'm assuming I'll like it and continue paying monthly just because I'll have all the time to keep using it for so little.

But again, I know I know, subscriptions sucks, apple bad, I'm ugly, etc, etc.

Still curious about plugin support. Their entire sales pitch for this being a companion to desktop rigs hinges on being able to go back and forth seamlessly, which hinges on third party plugins. Otherwise it’s just a toy.
