    As mentioned in one of the comments:

    “It’s already a subscription. Go FCP, buy new Macs forever.”

    Maybe they should just charge money for updates like the olden days of yesteryore.

    I’ve had it since 2011 and I like the fact, I can use it on five different workstations.

    Not sure how this will work going forward.

    I would def sit on one license if this does happen.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple goes to a hardware subscription model.

    They are doing it with iPhones (it’s not really a subscription, but the iPhone Upgrade Program sort of functions like a subscription), and now with M1 Macs and controlling the entire chipset, why wouldn’t they? They could then add on a ProApps subscription for another certain amount of money per month (probably pretty cheaply).

    I don’t know, I wouldn’t read too much in to this for now.

    People like me on Facebook said, “Hell no!” Now it is possible that Apple might be doing this for iOS devices though that is just a guess. Others have speculated that the subscription will be an option unlike the Adobe model. It could also mean that Apple will have its own content subscription model say something like that Shutter Stock has though that could be unlikely. Tea leaves are for making tea not something to read into like I just did. 😁

    “Potentially changing the price and payment model into a monthly, or yearly subscription could entice even more customers to use the software.”

    Not sure about this statement.

    It’s been a slow few months for FPCX news 😉
