Apple's annual Back to School promotion for students will begin this week in the U.S., according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. In a tweet today, he said the promotion will likely start on Tuesday, after new Macs are announced at WWDC on Monday.

Last year's promotion offered a free Apple gift card worth up to $150 with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad, while free AirPods were offered in 2021. The free item is in addition to Apple's standard educational discounts, with students already able to receive between 5% and 10% off most Macs, iPads, and Apple displays.

The promotion is typically available to students attending or accepted to a college or university, faculty and staff at higher-education institutions, parents purchasing on behalf of an eligible student, employees of a K-12 institution, and select others.

The offer will likely launch in Canada at the same time as in the U.S., followed by European and Asian countries a few weeks later.

Apple plans to announce a larger 15-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip during its WWDC keynote on Monday, according to Gurman. He also indicated that Apple is testing what appears to be new Mac Studio models with M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips.

Killexams : Apple Back to School deals could start on Tuesday

Some of the Apple products from Apple's 2022 Back to School deals

Apple's Back to School promotion could start this week in the United States, a leaker claims, with a possible launch of the sales event on Tuesday following the launch of new Mac models.

The annual Back to School promotion typically takes place early in the summer, but it seems that for 2023, it may be earlier than last year. It is claimed that the educational sales event could take place on Tuesday, June 6.

According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg via Twitter, the 2023 Back to School deal will "kick off next week (Tuesday likely)," with it timed to occur after new Macs are expected to be announced at WWDC. In 2022, the promotion started on June 24, making the 2023 edition seemingly a few weeks early.

In previous years, Apple offered bonuses on top of educational discounts of up to 10% on major products, including Mac models and iPad. In 2022, this included gift cards worth up to $150, and in years past, it has even offered AirPods for qualifying purchases.

Killexams : ‘Lisa’s Final Act’ looks at the history of Apple’s ill-faced Lisa computer

The Verge, Vox Media’s technology and culture brand, has released their latest long form documentary, Lisa’s Final Act

History of iMac Computers: How Appl…

Please enable JavaScript

Legend has it that in 1989, 2,700 Apple Lisa computers were buried in a landfill in Logan, Utah. The Lisa was an infamous failure: though it was one of the world’s first personal computers to sport a graphical user interface, it was sabotaged by its own famed co-inventor: Steve Jobs. What happened to Lisa after its death, however, is less well-known — in fact, there’s just one surviving article from the time that covers the incident in Utah. Lisa’s Final Act travels back to Utah to find out what happened, why the computer failed, and how it earned a brief second life before being buried for good.

Lisa’s Final Act features exclusive interviews with those that worked with and for Apple during the 1980’s including a former Lisa Software Manager, Apple’s Senior Engineer, and resale executives along with The Herald Journal’s original reporter and photo editor, and the author of the acclaimed book,  Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh, the Computer that Changed Everything. 

Lisa’s Final Act is the third documentary from The Verge and is produced by the Emmy nominated team of Netflix’s The Future Of. Additional documentaries from The Verge include Springboard: The Secret History of the First Real Smartphone and Rocketland: The SpaceX Superfans Uprooting Their Lives for Elon’s Starship

Killexams : Apple’s App Store facilitated $1.1 trillion in sales in 2022: Study

Apple’s (AAPL) App Store facilitated some $1.1 trillion in sales in 2022, according to a report by Analysis Group. The study, which Apple funded but was compiled independently by Analysis Group, found that App Store sales have skyrocketed 116% since 2019 when the marketplace facilitated $519 billion in sales.

Importantly, the report states, more than 90% of the $1.1 trillion came from sales that did not happen via the App Store itself, meaning Apple didn’t collect commissions on them. According to the study, those sales included items such as subscriptions to newspapers purchased on third-party websites, as well as physical goods and services purchased through apps.

In fact, the report states that 81%, or $910 billion, of those total sales came in the form of physical goods and services.

Apple faces intense scrutiny over its App Store practices around the world. The company currently collects between a 30% and 15% commission on app purchases, in-app purchases, and in-app subscriptions.

Regulators around the world, however, have criticized Apple’s policies, Google (GOOG, GOOGL) has similar rules around its own app store, and are increasingly pressuring the company to open up its platform to third-party marketplaces or purchase options.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the Justice Department is probing potential antitrust violations related to Apple’s App Store.

The EU, meanwhile, has introduced the Digital Markets Act, which requires Apple to allow third-party app payment options and for users to be able to download apps from third-party stores. Lawmakers in the US have also discussed beefing up antitrust laws to better target Apple’s App Store, but the move has never come to fruition.

The Analysis Group study found that an average of 650 million visitors access the App Store each week, with users downloading an average 747 million apps each week in 2022. The digital storefront, the report found, has 1.2 million apps in total.

The vast majority of the $1.1 trillion in sales Analysis Group reported came from general retail sales, which topped $621 billion in 2022. That was followed by travel sales, which hit $102 billion.

China generated the lion’s share of sales last year, the report found, bringing in $570 billion, the bulk of which came from general retail. The US added $273 billion, while Europe and the rest of the world notched $119 billion and $160 billion, respectively.

In addition to overall sales via the App Store, the Analysis Group report also found that Apple has rejected more than 950,000 apps for privacy violations and prevented $5 billion in fraudulent transactions since 2020.

Killexams : Eating an Apple a Day Can Help You Stay Strong as You Age, New Study Says

Researchers found that foods rich in flavonoids, like apples and blackberries, may reduce your risk of developing frailty, which leads to falls and bone breaks.

Aleksandr Zubkov / GETTY IMAGES

It turns out the old adage "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" really does have some truth behind it. According to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, foods rich in flavonoids—like apples and blackberries—will keep you strong as you age.

According to the researchers, approximately 10 to 15 percent of older adults experience frailty, a condition that leads to a greater risk of falls, fractures, disability, hospitalization, and mortality. While current dietary recommendations for preventing frailty focus primarily on protein intake, there are other foods that can keep the condition at bay.

To obtain their findings, the researchers utilized data from the Framingham Heart Study to determine the association between flavonoid intake and frailty onset. In total, there we 1,701 participants included in the cohort. All individuals were free of frailty at the start of the study and were followed for 12 years to evaluate their health.

The researchers found that when participants added just 10 more milligrams of flavonoids to their diets per day, the odds of developing frailty went down by 20 percent. That's the equivalent of eating a medium sized apple (which has about 10 milligrams of flavonols, a subclass of flavonoids) per day, study authors note.

"Although there was no significant association between total flavonoid intake and frailty, higher flavonols intake was associated with lower odds of developing frailty," said study co-author Shivani Sahni in a press release. Specifically, a higher intake of quercetin, which is found in apples, had the strongest association with frailty prevention, Sahni added.

While the data suggests that there may be other subclasses of flavonoids that have the most potential for frailty prevention, study authors note that more research is needed.

Killexams : An apple a day can keep frailty away, study suggests

Foods like apples and blackberries may help prevent older people from getting frail, according to a new study.

These fruits contain flavonoids called quercetin and it may be the most important ingredient for combatting the state of health related to the ageing process.

This bitter-tasting compound can be found in fruits, vegetables, leaves, seeds, red onions, grains, kale, and other food supplements.

The study found that for every 10mg of flavanols consumed per day, frailty was reduced by 20%.

"There may be some validity to the old saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor [or frailty] away," said the authors.

"Individuals can easily consume 10mg of flavanols intake per day since one medium sized apple has about 10 mg of flavanols."

However, the team also said there was "no significant" association between total flavonoid intake and frailty.

Co-author Shivani Sahni said: "Although there was no significant association between total flavonoid intake and frailty, higher flavanols intake - one of the subclasses of flavonoids - was associated with lower odds of developing frailty.

"Specifically, higher quercetin intake was the flavonoid that had the strongest association with frailty prevention."

Ms Sahni said the data suggested that there may be subclasses to flavonoids that have more potential for preventing frailty.

Researchers said that future studies should focus on the dietary interventions of flavanols or quercetin for the treatment of frailty.

Further research also needs to be conducted with people from different backgrounds, they said.

The findings were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

What is frailty syndrome?

According to Age UK, frailty is generally characterised by issues like reduced muscle strength and fatigue.

This means people can have relatively "minor" health problems, such as urinary tract infections, that have severe long-term impacts on their health.

About 10% of people aged over 65 live with it, and this figure rises to between 25% and 50% for those aged over 85.

Killexams : Hands On With Apple's New Final Cut Pro for iPad

Professional video editing is one of the most resource- and screen-space-demanding tasks computers perform, and with AI features coming to the category, it’s only becoming more so. That’s why it’s remarkable that Apple’s newly released Final Cut Pro app for iPad has managed to produce a highly usable and reasonably full-featured video editing application for a tablet.

The newly designed app requires at least an 11-inch iPad Pro, which makes sense. After all, you need a largish screen just to see what’s going on in the program—the timeline, source panel, preview panel, effects, audio, and so on. I tested the beta of Final Cut Pro for iPad on a 12.9-inch M2 iPad with 2TB storage for a few days. I'm extremely impressed with the app’s usability and power, though some professionals will miss certain features. The app makes video editing comfortable, thanks to an ingenious user interface design that’s more intuitive than most desktop video editing software.

Getting Started With Final Cut on the iPad

When you first launch the Final Cut app on the iPad, you need to pick a subscription. You get a one-month free trial, but you have to choose a $4.99 per month or $49 per year plan. If you bought Final Cut for macOS, you still need to pay this subscription to use the iPad app.

When you first start the app, it offers a demo movie project to help you get going. I’m a big fan of this approach, as opposed to apps that dump you in the deep end without a paddle. The demo (a manageable 400MB download) shows footage from a Lunar New Year celebration.

Intuitive Interface

At the top level of the project and media hierarchy, your projects show up in a panel on the left-side panel. Another side panel for account and app options is hideable with a button. When you open the demo project, you see a timeline view that looks remarkably similar to Final Cut Pro on the Mac, with some important differences, most of which make the program easier and clearer to use.

The interface is flexible. You drag up on the top of the timeline to enlarge it or down to push it out of view. You can resize the relative width of the viewer, switch it to full-screen, or change it to a floating (but oddly non-resizeable) picture-in-picture window. You can also turn off the source panel to get a larger preview window.

Touch gestures on the timeline work just as you’d expect them to. You can pinch and unpinch to zoom in and out, or drag a finger to move the timeline. To change the track height, you tap the Options button, switching to the Appearance tab, where you can also turn on and off (very narrow) audio meters. Unlike in iMovie, but more like in most other desktop video editors, you move the playhead to go back and forth through the timeline rather than moving the whole timeline while the playhead remains still.

The source and effect panel in the top right has something I greatly appreciate: a search box. This eases finding the transition, video or audio effect, object, or soundtrack you’re looking to use.

Getting your own clips onto the timeline involves choosing them from iCloud Drive, On My iPad, or another cloud source such as Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. Shared files, Recents, and Favorites also appear in the media adding dialog box, and you can color code them as well. This process of adding media will still be something of an adjustment for those used to a standard desktop file system, and pros may miss media bins, folders, and other organization tools.

Apple Pencil and Keyboard for Greater Precision

Using a stylus with Final Cut on iPad has some advantages. Being able to scrub through your video by simply gesturing above the timeline with the Apple Pencil is one of the cooler things about the app. Having a stylus also lets you precisely turn the jog wheel and tap on command buttons.

A keyboard has long been the main input device for video editors. With Final Cut Pro on the iPad, you can add a Magic keyboard ($299) or Smart Keyboard Folio ($179) to use all the keyboard shortcuts you already use with desktop video-editing software. For example, the J, K, and L keys let you control playback, and I and O let you set in and out points when pre-trimming.

The Jog Wheel

One of the cleverer bits of interface design in the app is the Jog Wheel. With it, you can either move through the timeline or set an adjustment value. You enable it with a button at top right, which presents a Minimized version at bottom right that you tap to enlarge to its full size. It scrolls frame by frame for precise edits.

Adding, Joining, and Trimming Clips

You can import media from the Photos or Files apps, or record it directly in Final Cut using your iPad. Once a clip is in the source panel, double-tapping it opens a pre-trim view so that you can choose in and out points before adding it to the timeline; or you can edit the endpoints after it’s on the timeline. You can both reject or favorite the clip ranges you’ve selected. Or apply keyword tags to clips, a plus for organizing and finding them later.

As with many video-editing apps, Final Cut on the iPad defaults to magnetic clip behavior when you drag one onto the timeline, called Snapping mode. A related choice is Position; when enabled, the project time is maintained when you add a clip, either by overwriting when you drop a clip onto the timeline or by adding empty space. It probably makes sense to turn on Position after you have a bunch of media and effects in the timeline and don’t want to bugger up the whole movie’s synchronization when you add a new clip.

I appreciate that you don’t have to drag the clips onto the timeline. You can also use the Append button to add the clip to the playhead position or storyline. Final Cut Pro on the Mac has buttons for the same options, and the concepts of a main storyline, connected clips, and roles (such as b-roll or dialog) spans both versions of the app.

Getting Funky With Effects

The Properties button opens a left panel from which you can apply transformations such as scaling and rotating, and cropping (with Ken Burns and Auto Crop choices). This opens the world of picture-in-picture effects and more. The transformations can be controlled with keyframe markers, something greatly aided by using an Apple Pencil. The Properties panel (when you have a clip selected) also lets you change the speed of the clip (with the option to maintain pitch), reverse it, or add a freeze frame.

Transitions and Effects

Adding transitions is a simple matter of dragging them between clips on the timeline. You get an option of duplicating content where there’s not enough overlap on your clips. There are only 34 transition choices compared with more than 100 on the macOS version of Final Cut. But there are some not found in the desktop version, stylized ones with colorful rectangles, that are suitable for social media videos.

The Mac version of Final Cut Pro includes over 150 effects, and you can add more thanks to plug-in support. The iPad version includes 55, though the documentation says third-party content (that is, plug-ins) is coming soon. For each effect that you apply, you can adjust the Lighting and color aspects, and you can create a mask to restrict the area affected by the effect. A Mix slider lets you adjust the strength of the effect. It all happens in the inspector panel which you opened from a button on the bottom of the screen.

Some of the more extreme effects like artistic style overlays are not to be found here. Nor do you get seamless transition choices.

Titles, Backgrounds, and Objects

The iPad version of Final Cut doesn’t provide you as large a selection of titles as you get in the desktop version, but what you get is high quality and highly configurable. There aren’t any 3D titles, but there are matched choices for opening, closing, lower thirds, and bumpers.

You get 26 snazzy background choices, but only eight objects, such as heart and thumb up. It’s a far cry from the selections found in consumer video software like Pinnacle Studio or CyberLink PowerDirector, which offer large sets of animated, customizable objects.

Scene Removal Mask

Scene Removal Mask is like a green screen shot that doesn’t require a green screen. In my quick testing on a couple of different shots, however, its results were not great. I hadn’t read the fine print, which says you need footage of the background without the subject first or at the end and that the background should be still. Also recommended are evenly lit, noncomplex backgrounds without shadows.

After trying to follow the suggestions, I still ended up with a pretty imperfect mask. Hair caused the background to leak in. I occasionally lost the mask on parts of the face, and glasses throwing the tool off. I’d like to see Apple add a sensitivity slider for folks to fine-tune the mask.

Live Drawing is a fun effect, though probably not one that professionals will warm up to. It lets you fingerpaint or draw on the preview windows with the Apple Pencil to create an animated markup. It worked just as advertised in my testing. Perhaps sports videographers could use it as a telestrator effect in post.

Multicam Editing

For multicam editing, you start by, you guessed it, tapping the Multicam button at the bottom of the interface. I tried dragging clips down into the multicam clip slots, but it doesn’t work. You first have to tap Add new multicam Clip. A box pops up showing your source clips, and you select up to four of them. You provide the muticam clip a name, a format, and whether to sync using audio. The last is on by default, and probably the best choice unless you’re a super professional outfit using timecodes. The Automatic format choice is also a good bet, as it determines the resolution, orientation, color space, and frame rate based on commonalities among your selected clips. Again, Automatic is likely the best option, but you can use custom settings if you prefer.

In my quick test, the feature worked to perfection. The clips were synced exactly correctly, and as with all these tools, you tap the angle you want as the video plays to get the angles you want at the times you want. I appreciate that separate clips for the selected angles appear on the timeline, rather than an uneditable merged clip, as some less-pro-oriented programs do.\


A decent selection of color effects are available in the Effects panel, but there’s no LUT support—yet. You get scopes and plenty of sliders for color adjustments but no HSL (hue, saturation, and lightness) wheels like those in the desktop app. These color wheels would be a good fit for controlling with the Apple Pencil. I also missed the presence of a color match tool to get two angles shot with different camera models matching in color.

Sound Options

The standard planner and fader as well as volume offset are available from the Inspect panel, where you also find fade in and out, voice isolation, and noise removal. The latter two worked well in my testing, though they occasioned the only crash during my testing of the preview version.

There are 23 acoustic effects (Cathedral, Robot, Delay, and so on) to choose from, and 45 background music tracks. One thing missing is short samples like crashing, dog barking, or explosions, which are fun and useful for video makers.

Exporting and Sharing

You can export a project as video or audio or both, and there are preset output options for social platforms as well as high quality and small file size. Impressively, you can export to six flavors of Apple’s ProRes format, to H.264, or to HEVC. You can also simply share the project in Final Cut for iPad’s own format. There’s no option to export Roles or Media Stems, as you can on the desktop app. In quick informal tests, exporting was quick, though I have nothing to compare it with as yet.

Apple’s press materials claim that you can send projects edited on Final Cut for iPad to the desktop version of the software, but I was unable to get it to work.

What You Don’t Get in the iPad Version

It’s impressive how much Apple has included in an app that belongs to one of the most complex categories of software. But of course, it’s only the first version and the company made some reasonable choices about what to leave out. You don’t get motion tracking, color wheels, or color match. The app doesn’t yet have third-party plug-in support, but Apple’s documentation states that that’s coming. Some tools of interest to studio editors are missing as well, such as Auditions and Media Stems.

The Final Word on Final Cut for iPad

Apple has done a remarkable job of bringing an extremely usable version of its pro video editing software into the touch world of the iPad. It can get pros most of the way when they’re working on professional video projects, and many a YouTuber or TikToker will find that it gets them all the way. The iPad version of Final Cut Pro is actually clearer to use and more delightful than most desktop video editing software. The nominal $4.99-a-month subscription is a worthwhile spend, especially if Apple continues to add features and content. If you prefer working on a couch instead of at a desk, Final Cut running on the iPad is a great option.

Killexams : FDA adopts decade-old draft guidance for arsenic in apple juice

It’s been 10 years in the making, but the FDA has announced final guidance on the levels of arsenic in apple juice, seen as crucial for children’s safety.

The new guidance sets the level at 10 parts per billion (ppb), the same as the agency’s draft guidance issued in 2013. In its final guidance document the Food and Drug Administration says it is possible to further reduce public exposure to inorganic arsenic from apple juice in general, and specifically from apple juice that currently may contain inorganic arsenic at levels above 10 ppb.

The action June 1 by the Food and Drug Administration is too little as far as the consumer safety group Consumer Reports is concerned.

“Today’s announcement by FDA will have minimal impact on public health because the action level should be lower than 10 ppb based on current science. Plus, they waited until a vast majority of the industry was already meeting this level, so this announcement is virtually irrelevant,” said Brian Ronholm, director of food policy for Consumer Reports.

“Nonetheless, it is encouraging that the FDA has recently undertaken a renewed focus on addressing food chemicals and heavy metals. Hopefully, the FDA will continue to focus on these issues and monitor and take action if they find troubling levels of inorganic arsenic in apple juice.” 

As if it knew that its action would be criticized, the FDA’s announcement included what could be considered a disclaimer.

“The FDA’s testing results reflect a trend in reductions in the amount of inorganic arsenic in apple juice on the market, with an increasing percentage of samples testing below 3 ppb and 5 ppb. However, since the release of the draft guidance (in 2013), we have identified some apple juice samples with inorganic arsenic levels above 10 ppb. Therefore, we are finalizing an action level of 10 ppb because we consider this level achievable with the use of good manufacturing practices,” according to the agency’s announcement.

Guidance documents from the FDA do not carry the weight of law, a fact readily admitted by the agency. Its announcement says that the “non-binding” limit for arsenic in apple juice will “help encourage” manufacturers to reduce levels of inorganic arsenic in apple juice.

The FDA says guidance documents do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities but instead describe the agency’s current thinking on a Topic and “should be viewed only as recommendations.” The use of the word “should” in FDA guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.

Inorganic arsenic in apple juice is considered a key component in food safety for children. The FDA says apple juice is a greater potential source of dietary inorganic arsenic exposure for children than for adults, because children’s dietary patterns are often less varied than those of adults, and they consume more apple juice relative to their body weight than do adults.

Scientific studies have shown that inorganic arsenic can impact the development of children, and lead to a host of problems including damage to the brain and nervous system, which can cause learning and behavioral problems.

“A report by the National Research Council (NRC) also listed adverse pregnancy outcomes and neurodevelopmental toxicity as adverse health effects of concern for exposure to inorganic arsenic,” according to the FDA’s final guidance document.

“The Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization (FAO/WHO) Expert Committee on Food Additives, which includes participation by FDA scientists, concluded that food can be a major contributor to inorganic arsenic exposure, and the European Food Safety Authority concluded that dietary exposure to inorganic arsenic should be reduced.”

Consumer Reports has repeatedly urged the FDA to set lower levels for inorganic arsenic in foods, especially baby foods, and to lower the action level to 3 ppb for arsenic in apple juice. 

In 2018, Consumer Reports tested 45 popular fruit juices sold across the country — including apple, grape, pear, and fruit blends — and found elevated levels of cadmium, inorganic arsenic, and/or lead in 21 of them. The consumer organization’s tests showed that it is possible for manufacturers to sharply reduce inorganic arsenic in their juices.

“Setting limits for inorganic arsenic in foods, especially foods consumed by children, is vital to help reduce exposure and better protect public health. While Consumer Reports (CR) supports an action level to offer regulators a necessary enforcement and accountability tool and a key benchmark for apple juice manufacturers, CR research shows the FDA’s final action level is not in the best interest of consumers,” the group said in a statement following the FDA’s announcement.

The FDA says it is possible for manufacturers of apple juice to reduce the levels of arsenic in apple juice by sourcing apples from orchards that have less ground contamination and less use of certain pesticides. Among other action, the agency also cautions manufacturers to test water sources for inorganic arsenic. 

“. . . exact research by FDA shows that the use of some filtering aids to remove sediments in juice can contribute to elevated arsenic levels. Changing or treating filtering aids may reduce the levels of arsenic in filtered juices,” according to the final guidance.

Looking at an averaging technique for data collected through the Total Diet Study (TDS), the FDA says the data had a mean of 2.7 ppb total arsenic with a standard deviation of 2.0 ppb total arsenic and ranged in concentration from 0 to 10 ppb total arsenic. The FDA did not use that data. 

“Because the compositing provides an ‘average’ result, and our achievability assessment is based on percentiles of arsenic concentrations in individual samples, we did not use the TDS data in the achievability assessment or other assessments in Section IV (of the final document),” according to the FDA.

In its conclusion of the final guidance, the FDA says it will take the following actions sampling and enforcement approach to arsenic in apple juice. 

  • We intend to initially analyze apple juice samples for total arsenic. 
  • We intend to speciate samples containing more than 10 μg/kg or 10 ppb total arsenic to determine inorganic arsenic levels. 
  • We intend to consider the action level of 10 μg/kg or 10 ppb inorganic arsenic as an important source of information for determining whether apple juice is adulterated within the meaning of section 402(a)(1) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 342(a)(1)). 

“FDA considers on a case-by-case basis whether a food that contains a contaminant is adulterated. When considering whether to bring an enforcement action in a particular case, we will consider whether the inorganic arsenic causes apple juice to be adulterated under section 402(a)(1) of the FD&C Act,” the final guidance says.

Killexams : Apple Brings Final Cut Pro And Logic Pro To iPad

As with DaVinci Resolve, the iPad versions of Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro aren't as robust and feature-dense as their Mac counterparts. Whether that's a bad thing depends entirely on how you use the applications. If you need the software for relatively minor projects, such as editing YouTube videos, you may be able to ditch your laptop or desktop entirely in favor of the iPad. Everyone else, however, may find that while the iPad versions are a great option for those times you're away from your desk, they're not able to completely replace your workstation.

Regardless, the iPad version does bring some unique UI elements into the mix — if you have an iPad Pro model that supports the feature, for example, you can quickly scrub through a Final Cut Pro project timeline by hovering the Apple Pencil over it. Likewise, Apple has included support for its Magic Keyboard, which should help provide the apps a more professional feel, as you can utilize keyboard shortcuts as part of your workflow.

As mobile device owners have come to expect, these apps are available with a subscription plan, meaning they have a low financial barrier to entry, but you'll either need to pay $4.99 per month each or $49.99 per year to use them. Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad can be found on the App Store.

Killexams : What’s It Like to Use Apple's Final Cut Pro on an iPad?

A user on a blanket on a patch of grass running Final Cut Pro for iPad on an iPad.

Today, Apple is launching both Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for the iPad, with the former only running on M1 chips and later and the latter working on models with the A12 Bionic and later. Gizmodo got some lead time with these apps, and while I’m no professional video editor, I have stitched together the occasional music video, video review, and cat meme in the past. As Apple’s sent me a fancy new M2 iPad Pro for testing (which will be going back to them in a few weeks, in case anyone is curious how this stuff works), I took the time to test out how natural it feels to cut together videos on a tablet. Given my level of experience, though, expect more of a hands-on than a review.

While I’m not sure professionals will immediately migrate to the “editing on a tablet” experience, the power certainly seems to be there for it. Which is good. As more creators become independent documentarians in their own right, being able to quickly cut together professional videos on the go in a full featured suite is becoming more important.

One note: I, unfortunately, didn’t spend much time in Logic, as I don’t have much experience producing music. But I will say that any UI or touch interface observations I make for Final Cut largely apply to Logic as well.

You need a subscription to use Final Cut Pro for iPad

Perhaps the biggest difference between Final Cut Pro on iPad vs Mac, and what you’ll notice right away when you open the app, is its pricing structure. While Final Cut Pro on Mac is a one-time purchase of $300, the mobile app operates on a subscription model–$5 for a month and $50 for a year. Subscription models for creative apps, from Adobe Creative Cloud to Microsoft 365, have become a controversial norm over the past decade, though it is worth pointing out that you’d have to use this version of Final Cut Pro for six years before it costs as much as the Mac version. For a casual user, this could wind up saving them money, although professionals who intend to keep using it for longer will pay more in the long run.

Is it comfortable to video edit with your finger?

The next biggest difference, and the most obvious, is the form factor of both the device and app. While you can connect a keyboard and mouse to the iPad, which will provide you a similar experience to what you’d get on Mac, the entire app has been reworked to operate with touch controls. This means that you long-press-and-drag to click-and-drag, you long-press to enter the inspect menu, and you press a virtual button to undo.

Aside from that, the basics operate similarly to how they work on Mac, aside from the added benefit of being able to comfortably and easily edit in bed, or wherever you might use your tablet. The app is compatible with Apple Pencil, although for most functions, I found my finger more comfortable, and surprisingly natural. That said, Apple Pencil on M2 iPad Pros can use its “hover” function to show you a preview of where you’re about to tap the screen before you do, which can be helpful for more precisely cutting or extending clips. This was mostly helpful, although Apple Pencil hover will also scrub across the timeline even if you don’t make physical contact with the tablet, which read as a little aggressive to me. For the most part, I was impressed at the level of precision I could get with finger alone, which was usually enough.

If you’re somebody who likes to use a dial when editing, you can also access a virtual dial in Final Cut Pro for iPad, which will allow you to more carefully scrub through the timeline than Apple Pencil, and perhaps your finger, might allow.

Live drawing in Final Cut Pro

When you boot up Final Cut Pro for iPad, you have the option to launch right into a demo project of a Lunar New Year celebration to get yourself situated with the app, and it’s here that I discovered one of my favorite new Final Cut features, exclusive to this version. By clicking a pen icon at the top of the screen, you can make a “live drawing” on the clip you have selected, which will then play out in real-time during your video. While the app still has access to its usual selection of transitions, titles, backgrounds, and effects, I found that making a title card with a live drawing over a photo gave my edits a more personal touch.

I discovered this while putting together a video of my cat, in which my title card was simply a photo of her accentuated by a live drawing of me writing out “Meow!” and drawing a small smiling kitty face. While you certainly don’t need an editor as complex as Final Cut Pro to put together a quick cat video, it was certainly up to the task. Also, because of the iPad Pro’s 10MP external camera, I was able to conveniently capture my footage and edit it on the same device, which you can do straight from the app. If you prefer to use an iPhone or other camera to capture footage, Final Cut Pro for iPad is also able to access anything in your photo library, so you can simply sync up footage over iCloud for it.

Still too difficult to use multiple apps at once on an iPad

With the convenience of being able to capture and edit on the same device unfortunately also comes some inconvenience. Because Final Cut Pro for iPad uses a tablet interface, you can’t yet pull up multiple free-moving windows at once while working on a project. The best you can do is open Stage Manager, which will allow you to easily switch apps without going to the home screen every time. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to see a full view of, say, your notes, your internet browser, your files, and your project all at once. I found myself, as a Final Cut Pro noob, frequently dipping out of my project to look things up, and it’s this sort of workflow impedance that I think might keep professionals away from the app. That, and a mouse still being a more precise way to make cuts.

Is Final Cut Pro for iPad worth it?

In most ways, though, this truly seems to be Final Cut Pro, just on an iPad. I’m more of an Adobe user, but it’s worth noting that while Final Cut Pro for iPad is mostly fully featured, the only version of Adobe Premiere for mobile users is the stripped-down “Adobe Premiere Rush.” As a former student of a journalism school that had us using Snapseed to cut together Instagram Stories on our phones so that we would be ready for “the future,” I’m glad to see more desktop level suites making their way to folks who might need to edit on the fly. You won’t see the next Avengers being made on an iPad, but for young videographers putting together quick man-on-the-street style documentaries, or even for folks who want to treat their project more like a low stress, fun hobby than a “sit down at your desk” activity, Final Cut Pro for iPad fills a niche that’s been left woefully absent until now.
