BlackMagic has announced that DaVinci Resolve, a professional video editor, is now available for select Apple M-series iPads, including the 1st-gen iPad Pro with M1 as well as the 2nd-gen iPad Pro with M2. It is also available on the iPad Air, also with an M1 chip.

It was announced first back in October. The developers said that this version will deliver 4x faster UltraHD ProRes res rendering for both M1 and M2 chips. The interface is similar to DaVinci Resolve 18 available on PC, except it’s modified so that it is optimized for use on iPads. BlackMagic has also announced support for HDR for those using a 1st-gen iPad Pro. Creators can also send a clean feed grading monitor on an Apple Studio Display, Pro Display XDR, or AirPlay-compatible display.

Currently, it is available for free, while an in-app purchase for the more professional Studio version, which unlocks more features, can be purchased for USD 95 (~Php 5.3K). In the Philippines, this price may increase or decrease depending on current regulations.

We tried searching for it on our 9th-generation iPad which uses Apple’s A13 Bionic chip. Sadly, it is not available yet.
