The all-new touch interface of Final Cut Pro features exciting additions like the Magnetic Timeline, a jog wheel, and intuitive multi-touch gestures. The introduction of the innovative Live Drawing feature allows users to directly draw and write on video content using Apple Pencil.
iPad Pro models powered by the M2 chip bring the added convenience of Apple Pencil hover functionality, enabling users to swiftly navigate through footage without making contact with the screen. Moreover, creators utilizing the iPad Pro’s 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR display can take advantage of Reference Mode for precise color grading.
With pro camera mode, the iPad empowers video creators to capture high-quality videos – including ProRes on iPad Pro with the M2 chip – in both portrait and landscape orientations, offering complete control over focus, exposure, and white balance. Additionally, creators can monitor audio levels and take advantage of Multicam video editing, effortlessly switching between different angles with a simple touch gesture. Leveraging the power of machine learning, Final Cut Pro enables swift editing tasks such as fast cutting, scene removal, and auto-cropping to accommodate various aspect ratios.

Logic Pro takes the creative power of the iPad to a professional level, offering a comprehensive solution for musicians. It introduces intuitive multi-touch gestures that enable users to navigate through even the most intricate projects with ease. The built-in microphones on iPad Pro can transform any space into a recording studio.
The new sound browser enhances the music creation experience by providing filter options, allowing musicians to compose whenever inspiration strikes. With access to a vast collection of instrument patches, plug-ins, samples, and loops, Logic Pro equips musicians with everything they need for their creative endeavors.
With an extensive set of tools, producers have everything necessary to manipulate and refine samples in Logic Pro. The innovative Beat Breaker feature enables creators to reshape sounds by swiping and pinching, while the pitch-morphing plug-in adds further flexibility. The mixer provides a comprehensive solution for professional-level mixing on the tablet, offering channel strips, volume faders, pan controls, sends, and precise automation capabilities.
Logic Pro also supports roundtripping, making it seamless to transfer projects between Mac and iPad and the ability to import GarageBand projects. Additionally, music creators can export their projects to Final Cut Pro, further expanding their creative possibilities.
