Apple Inc., the global smartphone and technology giant, reportedly announced its plan to extend the length of the free trial duration of its newly launching pro creative applications, Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X, from 30 days to 90 days. This extension would allow customers at home to analyze and use this software for a longer period.
The company stated that it expects that this marketing would help creative Mac users, particularly students, who are currently in creating and learning new environments.
With this extension, Apple has now joined a number of software firms that have already extended their free trials on products amidst the growing COVID-19 crisis. However, Apple doesn’t charge any subscription price, so if a user wants to continue the usage of audio or video editing software suites, they would have to pay the entire purchase price of the software.
Logic Pro X is a music editing software and it provides a staggering amount of music creation choices spanning from patches to loops to instruments and effects. It is just like Garage Band but with additional capabilities. In fact, users creating music using Garage Band can now see whether they must dive in the deep end with professionals and try the Logic Pro X.
While the Logic Pro X is about music, Final Cut Pro X is company’s movie editing software tool, and is a fan favorite amongst professional video editors. With this new software, a user can easily edit 360-degree VR and AR content, also add audio, along with few other features.
The prices of Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X are $199.99 and $299.99 respectively. The company stated that the extended trial period is already ongoing for Final Cut Pro X and would also be honored for recent downloads. Meanwhile, Logic Pro X is likely to gain this newly extended trial period over the coming days.
