Adobe to Release “Full” Photoshop App for Apple iPad Devices in 2019

By Nitish Singh / July 13, 2018

Chief product officer of Adobe Creative Cloud Scott Belsky revealed that a desktop-grade Adobe Photoshop app is in the works for the Apple iPad. Adobe currently offers a large host of apps for iPads and iPhones, but they offer mostly casual editing features that do not quite compete with the “full” version of Photoshop. The new Adobe app will be unveiled at the Adobe MAX conference in October 2018, and we should see the app hit the Apple Store sometime in 2019.

Apple’s iPad has been marketed as a laptop replacement, but it still lacks enough tools to compete against traditional Windows laptops when it comes to productivity apps. With a full-fledged Photoshop app coming to iOS next year, the app can cater to not only hobbyists but also professional editors.

Belsky revealed in a recent interview “My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible. There’s a lot required to take a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make that work on a modern device like the iPad. We need to bring our products into this cloud-first collaborative era.”

Adobe will also be releasing its new Project Rush app that will bring light video editing capabilities to all major platforms including iOS. The new apps by the developers can help solidify the iPad’s stance in the consumer market as an all-around portable computing device. The original iPad was introduced by Steve Jobs as a device which could potentially replace laptops. With desktop-grade apps and powerful silicon running under the hood of recent iPads, Jobs’ vision may become a reality soon.
