2020 cannot come soon enough: Adobe announced at its annual MAX conference that Illustrator will finally come to the iPad.
After Photoshop, Adobe is planning to bring another of its desktop-class apps to the iPad. While still in early development, Adobe said that Illustrator for the iPad is now set for a 2020 launch. The iPadOS app will focus on making the most of touch and the Pencil-based input which are unique to the iPad.
As with Photoshop for iPad, documents created on one platform will be available to edit on any others via Creative Cloud storage.
Adobe said it has already been in touch with many designers to better understand their needs and what an iPad version of Illustrator would need to offer in order to help them maximize the use of tablets in their work. The app will first be available for beta testing to a very limited number of select designers who will help Adobe further define the scope and development process.
One thing is for sure: the iPad will benefit from a fuller suite of Adobe tools.
