iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support
I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.
A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

When??????? PS, AI on iPad … but we’re the XD??????
Please, make it happen, we want the full Adobe XD for iPad, I own a MacBook (for everything) and iPad (sketch’s, notes, illustrations and Behance) but when I travel I use my iPad for more comfort and I’d like to edit my projects instead of testing for view only. If the full version of Adobe XD is released for iPad I’m gonna sell my MacBook and iPad to get the IPad pro 😣🙏
Full version Adobe XD on iPad OS is obligatory. In other way we will switch to figma. That's sad.

How is it possible that this still hasn't been done yet!
I'm a little shocked to have purchased an M1 iPad Pro with a 13" display, which runs Illustrator and Photoshop for iOS well, as well as every other app I've tried. Except one. Adobe XD.
After 5 years of using XD, I'm forced to consider either switching to Figma (which works really well on all platforms), or returning this iPad.
1. Is a full-fledged XD app for iPad iOS at least on the roadmap? (If so I can at least aim to hold out for a little while and use my 12" Macbook when portability is required).
2. Also, if such an app is in development, will it include newer features such as co-editing? There are several members of our design team with whom I work on files simultaneously.

Definitely this feature should be implemented. This thread was opened in 2016. There is still no solution. Not only the Xd program, but all the programs connected to the creative cloud must work on the ipad pro. For example, After effects.

We are in the middle of 2021 and still no response concerning this subject.
I am seriously considering switching to the competition because of this

Hi! I want to use Adobe Xd program to edit my projects on my iPad Pro. This is a necessity. I'm working remotely, my tablet's processor is strong enough to do this, but the program only opens in view mode.I want to use the after effects program on my ipad pro to edit my projects. I want to be able to do everything I can on a computer on my tablet

Hope they have a functional iPad version soon.
If Adobe is working on the iPad version, please announce. Let everyone knows..
Given the new M1 iPad Pros, I sincerely hope this will gone from under review to in progress. Perhaps I am in the minority, but I am working exclusively from an iPad Pro these days and having XD would be a huge benefit for mocking up apps and sites.
Not to mention that Adobe Comp has not been updated in 2 years, which means even the more simplistic app isn’t up to the task. iPads, and mobile devices in general, are no longer simply companion devices for checking email; they are full productivity tools where people turn to get work done efficiently and effectively and stand on their own. Adobe XDR would be a killer app for those of us on the go to be able to design and mock up wherever we are, without the need of a large laptop.

Seriously this was posted in 2016, and still nothing. A full iPad XD version would be so useful in this industry, but you keep dragging—considering switching my team to a more competitive service.
After waiting for so long for this, my team is switching to Figma. That's sad...

please add XD on iPad
I have been using AppCooker on iPad for years, and now it’s no longer available on store.. I have to find an alternative…. I was hoping to find a full Adobe XD for my iPad Pro… but seems I’ll go for Figma!
Need iPad application with full alter and creating ui development
In 2 month it will be 5 years since launching this request.
Any updates, Adobe Employees?
This should be obvious

This is a no brainer, why is it still under review? We now have a M1 iPad Pro.
Seriously. Why has this not happened yet?
I just bought my iPad Air 4 with Apple Pencil so I could play with Photoshop and Illustrator on iPadOS. I completely understand that the feature sets do not match up 100% with the desktop versions, but most of the basics work great. It's nice to have an idea and get something started, move on to Desktop later if I can't finish on the iPad. I designed an entire shirt in Illustrator in just a few minutes. It was awesome to have that option to design during a car ride.
I can't think of anything in Windows or Mac versions of Adobe XD that would not translate well to an iPadOS version. Keep the same menus and panels, but have them move out of the way when not actively being used. It takes some time for a user to adapt to the slightly different interface (touch screen/stylus instead of mouse and keyboard) but it wasn't that difficult (I've used a stylus for years anyway).
I know that you can't just translate the code and call it a day. But from a usability standpoint I do not see why this hasn't happened yet. The Adobe XD app in it's current form is basically useless on the iPad. I can send someone a link to test out my prototype, not matter what their OS or device.
Please make it happen, Adobe!
