Illustrator is everywhere.

Illustrator on the iPad is part of Creative Cloud, so you can design anywhere, work seamlessly across your devices, and keep everything in sync. Bring in images from Adobe Photoshop on the iPad and easily access your color palettes in Creative Cloud Libraries.

These features are just the beginning.

We’re constantly updating Illustrator on the iPad to help you bring your vision to life even more effortlessly. Here are some of the latest features.

Easy vectorizing

Take a photo of a sketch and convert it into a vector. You can turn any other raster images into vectors too.


Art and calligraphic brushes

Express yourself with new brush styles. Create and customize strokes to get just the hand-drawn look you want.


Works with Photoshop and Fresco

Easily bring PSD files from Photoshop or Adobe Fresco into Illustrator on the iPad. Photoshop layers are preserved when you import.


Enhanced Blob Brush

You can taper the ends of the Blob Brush, so it feels more like using a real brush. Plus, your line automatically smooths as you draw.


Support for templates

Pull in Adobe Illustrator Template (AIT) files you’ve purchased from Adobe Stock or other sources. Or start a new project in AIT format.

An award-winning experience.
