Apple’s professional editing tools for macOS, Final Cut Pro, and Logic Pro might be coming to iPadOS in the coming years.
Giving details on the upcoming iPadOS 17 designed for larger 14.1-inch iPad Pro, leaker @analyst941 recently said that Final Cut Pro would debut on iPad in 2024 and Logic Pro would release in 2025.
Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro would enhance the editing experience on iPad Pro
Final Cut Pro is a paid video editing app that allows users to personalize videos with a variety of effects, and tools. Currently, the app is only available on macOS and @analyst941 claims it will be arriving on iPadOS 17 in 2024. If true, it will likely enhance the editing experience for creators on iPad with Apple Pencil support, especially on iPad Pro.
The latest Pro line includes a 12.9-inch iPad Pro (sixth-generation) powered by an M2 chip, and 11-inch iPad Pro (third-generation) powered by an M1 chip. In 2021, Apple launched a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with an M1 chip which was discontinued in 2022.
The fast performance and incredible power efficiency of Apple Silicon and advanced displays on the new iPad Pro models have turned them into high-performance machines for professional editing like the popular third-party editing app, DaVinci Resolve for iPad.
Leaker also claims that Apple’s native creative tool Logic Pro will debut on iPadOS in 2025. It is a paid app for professional songwriting, mixing, beat-making, and editing. It is integrated with Dolby Atmos to support mixing and exporting songs as spatial audio, offers a wide collection of sounds and plug-ing, and more.
It is also only available on macOS, currently.
Furthermore, the leaker claimed that the new 14.1-inch iPad Pro would support two 6K displays at 60Hz, Thunderbolt / USB 4 daisy chain, and more importantly, an advanced M3 Pro chip and custom iPadOS 17 version.
In January 2023, Apple launched M2 Pro and M2 Max chips in the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. It is speculated that the new M3 Apple Silicon will be built TSMC’s on a 3nm process.
I’ve heard there’s a special version of iPadOS 17, being developed specifically for larger iPad Pro/Ultra/Studio model(s), there’s a slight change that would give the 14.1” model support for up to 2 6K displays at 60hz.
This signals for a definite M3 Pro SoC in the flagship iPad https://t.co/7FcOyaZFdv
