At Apple’s October event, CEO Tim Cook described the iPad as the “most popular computer in the world.”
The company has long touted the iPad Pro as a likely vyer for the extinction of laptop. That claim might have been too good to be true then; designers, for instance, wouldn’t have been able to get about their work without fundamentals like Photoshop.
However, it seems like the notebook finally has a contender. Apple has unleashed its “most advanced” iPad Pro yet, and it’s not just the redesigned end-to-end display that ensures a more seamless working experience.
On Tuesday, Apple and Adobe conducted a live demonstration of the full Photoshop CC app for iPad Pro, which is slated to arrive in 2019.
As seen in the presentation, the iPad Pro was able to host a massive PSD file of over three gigabytes in size, as well as 157 different 12,000 by 12,000-pixel layers, without lagging at all.
Seeing as how designers would be working without a keyboard, Photoshop CC for iPad comes with new controls that are “reimagined for touch,” such as a one-touch modifier to switch between your most frequently-used tools.
PSD files go right into the cloud, so there’s no import and export time. This also means you’ll have easy access to them via your iPad Pro or desktop.
The new iPad Pro is now available to order online and will arrive in stores on 7 November 2018.
Check out the live demo of Adobe Photoshop CC for the iPad Pro, which begins at 1:06:27 in the video below.
