Apple has made its professional-grade software for video editing and music making – Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X – free with a 90-day trial.
Normally, Final Cut Pro X has a 30-day trial, which has now been extended to 90 days, and works even if you’re already on a 30-day trial. And Logic Pro X, which didn’t have any sort of free trial so far, now gets the 90-day trial option as well.
The new options come after an unprecedented migration towards work-from-home arrangements amid a global coronavirus outbreak. In early March, Apple itself told many of its workers to work from home if possible, and numerous other companies have done the same.
Apple says it launched the initiative to give customers who are home a chance to try out the software. There’s no word on when the offer will end.
COVID-19 — the disease caused by coronavirus — has so far killed more than 21,000 and infected more than 465,000 people. The outbreak has been worsening in the U.S. in recent weeks, with more than 82,100 confirmed cases and 1,195 deaths.
