Adobe this week updated its Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw apps for iPad with support for the second-generation Apple Pencil.

In the latest versions of the apps, 2018 iPad Pro users can now take advantage of the new ‌Apple Pencil‌'s double-tap functionality to switch between drawing tools, activate the color picker, and zoom in and out of the canvas.

The double-tap gesture can be set to one of the following options in the Settings app under the Adobe Sketch or Adobe Draw menus:

  • Switch between brush and eraser

  • Switch between current and last used brush

  • Activate the color picker

  • Zoom in or out

  • None

Check the updates tab of the App Store for version 4.7 of each app.
