Adobe’s “Project Aero” augmented reality app goes live for iPhone and iPad

Today, Adobe released Photoshop for iPadOS, a year after announcing it. We also see the launch of Adobe Aero, which allows you to design augmented reality (AR) experiences.

You can import 3D models, photos and layers from Photoshop and other Adobe applications, and combine triggers and actions to produce AR layouts. There’s no coding knowledge required, and the app appears simple to use.

Once done, you can save the file in different formats, so it can be edited in other apps, and share it with others. You can also check out what you just produced. Adobe lets you record your AR project so it can shared on social media.

Aero works on iOS and iPadOS 13.2.1 and above, which actually hasn’t been released yet, so we presume this is 13.2. All iPhone models from the 8 Plus to the iPhone 11 Pro are supported, as are the iPad Pro 3rd generation, Mini 5 and iPad Air 3. These devices can support ARKit 2 due to their powerful processors.
