Pop star Taylor Swift made Apple change its policy of three months of free trial period to the new users who will sign up for its iTunes services.

In an open letter addressed to Apple, Taylor implores Apple to understand that the new policy is extremely hard upon new and coming artists because they would not be able to support themselves along with all the other artists associated in various stages of song producing and writing.

Initially, Apple intended the services to be absolutely free for the users and the payments for artists was not part of the plan, in response to which the Bad Blood singer took down her album, 1989 from iTunes.

“These are not the complaints of a spoiled, petulant child,” she wrote in her letter. “These are the echoed sentiments of every artist, writer and producer in my social circles who are afraid to speak up publicly because we admire and respect Apple so much.”

But after Taylor’s letter, Apple decided to change its policy and pay the artists during the trial period. As tweeted by Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior Vice President to it’s internet softwares and services,

Taylor Swift retweeted and responded to Eddy Cue’s tweet by saying:

 

“We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation,” Taylor wrote in her letter. Various artists took to twitter and lauded this change of policies by Apple and expressed their thanks for Taylor raising her voice to support them.

Apple has introduced third-party workflow extensions and a host of new features for professional video creators in its update to “Final Cut Pro X” — its professional video-editing programme.

The “Final Cut Pro X” update, now available on the Mac App Store, introduces workflow extensions that enable professional video editors to use third-party apps and services directly within the editing interface, Apple said in a statement late on Thursday.

Workflow extensions match the look of Final Cut Pro and integrate tightly into the app, allowing editors to drag media into Final Cut Pro libraries, sync playback between extensions and timeline, add clip markers and more.

“These extensions make it easy to use popular tools that enhance post-production including review and approval with Frame.io, stock footage browsing and purchasing with Shutterstock and media asset management with CatDV,” the company added.
