Will Xcode really come to the iPad? Or will Apple just release a companion app, just like Logic?
So lots of people have been anticipating pro apps (especially Apple’s) coming to the iPadOS. These would be primarily Logic, Final Cut, and Xcode.
Apple has just updated Logic, and its press release has the headline: “Apple unveils biggest update to Logic since the launch of Logic Pro X ”
And the first photo they show is a MacBook Pro with an iPad Pro both running Logic! … Given the headline and the photo I thought for a split second maybe Apple finally brought Logic over to the iPad. In reality, this was just a companion app (although I’m sure many can appreciate that the companion app exists – I’m not into audio so I can’t really comment).
If Logic is for the MacBook pro, and the Logic Remote is a companion app for the iPad, would this apply to the other Pro apps? Final Cut is for Macs, and Final Cut’s companion app is for the iPad. Xcode is for Macs, and Xcode’s companion app is for iPads. I know we’ve had rumors about Xcode making its way to iPadOS, but maybe all that’s happening is a companion app for iOS devices (maybe for testing an app out directly on an iOS device as opposed to developing on an iOS device).
