Photoshop Mobile: Apple Pencil Lag

When using the Apple Pencil 1 on the iPad (6th Gen), there is a slight delay in Photoshop when compared to drawing in the Apple Notes and OneNote apps. It happens more often when the Pencil is titled. Pressure sensitivity is off for both brush settings.

Same. 1st-gen pencil, 2nd-gen 12.9" iPad Pro. No lag in other programs, including Notes, Lightroom, Procreate, and Clip Studio Pro. In Photoshop everything is slow to react to the pencil, and even something as basic as drawing a straight, plain black line (with no pressure options enabled, no smoothing, no tilt or texture, just the simplest hard round brush) is laggy.

Same here. First gen iPad Pro 12.9” with first gen Apple Pencil. 
It’s particularly bad with the healing brush tool, where with a relatively small brush, it takes PS up to 5-10 seconds to catch up to a small scribble I’ve made with the tool.

It happens also with the Ipad pro 3rd! Definitely there is something going on!

I just got a new ipad pro 11“ and thought my pencil 2 was broken because of the lag in PS mobile. Turns out, it works just fine in any other app.

I'm also experiencing this - iPad Pro 2017 10.5" and Apple Pencil 1 - the pencil works perfectly in other apps (including Adobe Fresco) so hopefully this is just a fixable bug

I’m also experiencing this. I have an older iPad Pro 9.7 and a 1st Generation Apple Pencil and experience lag. I’ve noticed that the lag also gets worse the more I zoom in on an image.

Just got a iPad Pro 12.9 and 2nd gen pencil. One week into using photoshop and the lag just using a brush is terrible. Very disappointing.

I am using a third generation iPad Air. Admittedly I’m using an off brand Stylus, but it works completely Normal on all other apps.

my issue is that photo shop will not show me my brushstrokes when I’m using the stylus until I have lifted my pencil off of the screen. Then all of the strokes that I have registered will kick in immediately. If I use my finger it will show the brushstrokes as I am applying them. But if I use the pencil, it will not show me anything until I lift the pin off of the screen and then everything applies all at once.

I don’t know if this is the same issue as The lag other people are experiencing?

I have the older 9.7” iPad me 1st gen pencil. I have done a lot of work on a largish file (a map) but several months ago I had to give up because the lag suddenly got worse during an update. I have a business to run so I left the problem as it was a favour. However, it’s not really good enough as I’m paying the Adobe sub. BTW the 2gen pencil only works with later pro iPads so this is not a small outlay Adobe are expecting of us cash cows. The current financial climate isn’t a time for greed. We need to be efficient and slick to get us all out of the hole the entire world is now in.
