Adobe has announced that it has been busy developing Illustrator on the iPad. This dedicated tablet version is still in its early stages – an exclusive private beta has just launched (read on to find out how to sign up for early access). Adobe says the first version will be with us sometime in 2020. 

The tool will be rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of touch capabilities and the possibilities offered by the Apple Pencil. It will join the just-released Photoshop on the iPad and dedicated tablet painting and drawing app Adobe Fresco in Adobe's slightly-late-to-the-party collection of mobile creative tools. If you've been holding out for a iPad Black Friday deal but you've been on the fence, this could be the incentive you need to click 'add to basket'.
