Apple updates Final Cut Pro for iPad with new keyboard shortcuts

Apple has released the first update for Final Cut Pro for iPad, along with updates for its professional apps like Logic Pro, Compressor, and Motion.

In May this year, Apple finally launched Mac’s popular professional video editing and music creation tools on iPadOS, the Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro with a new touch interface for a smooth workflow experience and the immediacy and intuitiveness of Multi-Touch.

Although users, who had been requesting for Apple to expand the availability of the tools on iPad, praised the new touch interfaces, they complained about the lack of support for all features available on their macOS versions.

Addressing the criticism, Apple is gradually reducing the gap between Final Cut for Mac and Final Cut for iPad with new keyboard shortcuts.
