Allegedly Adobe brings Illustrator to the iPad in 2020

Last fall, Adobe announced that "real Photoshop" would come to the iPad sometime this year. We're still waiting for that to happen – the app is currently in beta testing – but it seems that Adobe is anticipating plans to bring more of its Creative Cloud software to Apple's tablet, such as Bloomberg reports now the next Adobe CC app for the iPad is Illustrator.


According to the report, Adobe can preview Illustrator for iPad at its Adobe Max conference in early November and plans to launch the full version sometime in 2020. The app is expected to "mirror" many features of the desktop version of Illustrator, Bloomberg says, which is very similar to what Adobe said it would do with Photoshop.

However, Photoshop for iPad may not be all that was promised when it was finally launched, like last week, Bloomberg reported that Beta & # 39; s of Photoshop for iPad apparently lack some functions and other important functions of the desktop version. Scott Belsky from Adobe, chief product officer of the company's Creative Cloud group, told the publication that Adobe would eventually expand the capabilities of Photoshop on iPad.

Today, Bold fireballs John Gruber wrote that "multiple reliable sources" say that Adobe is "really all-in" on Photoshop for iPad and that the team plans to add iteratively functions according to an aggressive schedule. So maybe launch features in the app are missing in the app soon, as Belsky promised.

Bloomberg reported last week that Adobe may be offering an update on Photoshop for iPad during the Max conference, so we probably don't have to wait much longer to find out more about Adobe's plans.
