Bloomberg first broke the news, reporting that the full Photoshop app is now scheduled to hit the iTunes App Store for the iPad sometime in 2019, but the app itself will be announced later this year in October at the annual Adobe MAX conference.
"My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible", Scott Belsky, Adobe's chief product officer of Creative Cloud said in an interview. For Adobe, having a full-featured Photoshop on the tablet is expected to satisfy hobbyists and more casual users of the software while still meeting the needs of professionals who need to perform tasks away from their work stations. "We need to bring our products into this cloud-first collaborative era". An iPad version of Illustrator is apparently also on its way, but it will come along later than Photoshop for iPad.
In a piece co-written with Nico Grant, Gurman reports that Adobe will show the app off for the first time at its annual MAX creative conference that will take place this October.
According to Bloomberg, the new Adobe Photoshop for iPad will allow users to seamlessly edit files between devices.

The firm won't completely replace the existing Photoshop app on the desktop with the "modern" version.
