If you've attempted to replace your primary computer with an iPad or iPad Pro, the answer to that question has been "no" until now.

At present, the closest thing Adobe offers to Photoshop on iPad is a stripped-down version called Photoshop Mix, available as part of Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription service. Sources claim the software company plans to announce the new app at its annual MAX conference this October, with the app's launch scheduled for sometime in 2019.

Adobe is reportedly planning to bring its flagship Photoshop app to the iPad. A full version of Photoshop on the iPad would provide photographers with far more features and power. Adobe's Creative Cloud product officer confirmed the plans and wants to get them 'on the market as soon as possible. We'll have to wait for official confirmation from Adobe on support for the original iPad Pro's and the new 2018 iPad with its A10 processor and Apple pencil support. With tablets beginning to overtake laptops as the tools of choice for many creators, Adobe decided that it was time to dedicate more resources to the iPad, and the new app will allow users to continue editing the same project between devices.

Although plenty of Photoshop alternatives already exist on the iPad, photo editors may finally be able to use the real thing next year. Adobe's desktop Creative Cloud apps are based on an "aging" architecture, Bloomberg notes, and the upcoming cross-platform version may still not satisfy all use cases. Right now, Photoshop proper is only available on Windows tablets like Microsoft Surface, which can run the Windows app in a "tablet-optimized" mode.

This news that Photoshop will be coming to iOS seems to suggest it was a successful test, after all - even if it's still in beta.
