At its annual MAX conference, Adobe today announced that it is planning to bring its popular Illustrator CC app for the desktop to the iPad in 2020.

Adobe Illustrator will follow Photoshop for ‌iPad‌, which is launching today.

illustratorforipad
According to Adobe, development for Illustrator on ‌iPad‌ is in the early stages of development, but the Illustrator experience is being reimagined from the ground up to take advantage of the "unique capabilities" offered by the ‌iPad‌, like Apple Pencil support.

Adobe is focusing on several core concepts, such as a seamless connection across devices and file interoperability, allowing files created on the ‌iPad‌ to be opened on the desktop and vice versa.

Adobe says that Illustrator on the ‌iPad‌ will let users work with Illustrator with "no loss of the detail and precision" expected from Adobe. For many designs, projects will be able to be started and finished on the ‌iPad‌.

The app will feature an interface that's "natural" and easy to use, and ‌iPad‌ features like the camera and the ‌Apple Pencil‌ will be leveraged. As an example, Adobe says that Illustrator users will be able to take a photo of a hand-drawn sketch and transform it into vector shapes using Illustrator for ‌iPad‌.

Those who are interested in Adobe Illustrator for ‌iPad‌ can sign up to get early access and stay informed on upcoming Illustrator news.

By 2020 they mean next November at Adobe Max 2020, not anytime before that.

*laughs in subscription*
I hate the never ending new subscriptions. Every other tiny one-trick-pony app now demands a subscription, usually asking way more than it deserves. That said - there are 2 software services imo that I totally feel are worth it - Microsoft Office365 (with the included 2TB OneDrive) and Adobe Creative Cloud. But I do serious work with both, maybe that's why.
