Apple has silently announced 90-days free trials for Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X. These are video and audio editing software available for Mac devices and are quite popular among content creators. While Final Cut traditionally offered 30-days trial, Logic did not offer any trial whatsoever. In other words, Apple has extended the free trial period for both software.
The idea behind increasing the trial period seems to be attracting new users which may convert into paying customers. Since the majority of the people are stuck inside their homes due to the Coronavirus outbreak, it seems like a good opportunity for Apple. Many of the professionals and students would be working from home and additionally, some users would be interested in learning a new skill during the quarantine period.
Both Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X are very feature-rich software which means it could take some time before getting familiar with the tools. A 90-day period appears to be good enough for anyone trying to decide whether to pay for the software. It should be noted that the extended free trial is applicable only for new users or those who have already started using the 30-day trial.
As mentioned in the beginning, both software available only for the macOS platform i.e. either Mac desktop or Macbooks. These can be downloaded by visiting the official Apple website through their respective pages.
