We have been eagerly anticipating the new Procreate update and are pleased to announce that its release has finally been announced! This week, Savage Interactive, the developers of Procreate, gave us a little sneak peek into what the update would look like.


So what do we know so far?

Although we do not yet have a launch date and are still very much in the dark with regards to the details, we do know this:

  • 3D artists will have the ability to import 3D models and paint them. They will also be able to preview their 3D designs in Augmented Reality, meaning they will see their models with realistic lighting and shadows.
  • There will be menu changes, allowing for greater accessibility from within the app. Tools will be easier to find, use, and adjust, such as the color palette tool which will be visible in both Compact and Card form.
  • Audio feedback will be enabled, meaning designers will hear the moves they make with VoiceOver integration.
  • Apple also announced its newest iPad Pro releases (in both 12.9" and 11") and the accompanying M1 chip. The M1 chip will come with an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU, which will make for a 50% faster CPU performance and 40% faster graphics performance. Essentially, the M1 chip will boost Procreate's performance by 4x.

Although that is all we are able to tell you now, we will keep you updated the more we learn! We cannot wait to explore Procreate 5.2 and see what our community creates with it.
