DaVinci Resolve for iPad is finally available on the App Store and is just as powerful as its desktop counterpart – at least as long as you’re using an M1 or M2 iPad Pro. The video editing app has a size of 2 GB and is compatible with devices from iPadOS 16 and at least an A12 Bionic chipset.
Older iPads will not get all the features of DaVinci Resolve and some models may be limited to HD projects. Developer Blackmagic recommends using an iPad Pro M1 or M2 model for the best experience. Connecting an external display or editing ProRes footage is exclusive to the M1 and M2 iPads.
Blackmagic has adapted the Resolve app to the touch surface of the iPad. But you can also connect an external keyboard and mouse as usual. All the features of the desktop app are on board, including color grading, editing, cloud collaboration, and AI-based magic masks and voice isolation.
You can also import existing DaVinci Resolve 18 projects into the iPad app. DaVinci Resolve Studio, which offers several premium features over the standard app, is available as a one-time in-app purchase for $94.99.
