Adobe Illustrator Ships on iPad Next Month

Posted on September 15, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in iPadOS with 10 Comments

Adobe announced today that Illustrator will ship on iPad next month, the second major CC application to make the leap to mobile.

“Previewed at Adobe MAX last year, Adobe Illustrator has been reimagined for the unique capabilities of the iPad and the Apple Pencil,” an Adobe representative told me. “Graphic designers, illustrators, and anyone looking to create beautiful designs can now create from anywhere with the desktop or the iPad in an all-new delightful experience.”

As noted, Adobe announced last year that it would bring Illustrator to the iPad, joining Photoshop. “We’re reimagining the Illustrator experience from the ground up to take advantage of the unique capabilities a tablet offers in terms of touch and Apple pencil,” Adobe’s Scott Belsky said at the time. “We’ve connected with thousands of designers to understand how they could use a tablet in their creative process.”

Illustrator for iPad is free for current Creative Cloud members who have access to Adobe Illustrator. You can preorder the app from the Apple App Store.
