At Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference 2016, software maker Serif demonstrated an early build preview of its Affinity Photo for iPad software. Affinity Photo is a Photoshop alternative currently available for macOS with, as previously announced, a Windows version in the pipeline. This newly demonstrated version of Affinity Photo is designed specifically for the iPad, and brings with it the same features found on the desktop version.

Though the company hasn’t formally detailed all of the iPad version's functionality, the video does showcase a handful of features and capabilities, including a high level of performance enabling it to handle very high resolution photos, full 32-bit HDR editing, the ability to view and edit panoramas in a 360-degree view, and focus merging.

'We’ve still got a load of work to do on [the iPad version],' Serif stated, 'but we thought you might like a peek.' An anticipated release date was not provided. The company currently offers a macOS version for $49.99, while Windows users can sign up for access to a pending Windows beta release.
