Lag with paintbrush tool in Illustrator on iPadPro

Hello community,


I am relatively new to Adobe Illustrator. I have used it a bit on my MacBook Pro and am now starting to use it on my iPad Pro Version 14.2. I am experiencing a lag when I use the paintbrush tool on my iPad that I don't experience on my laptop. It won't let me start making a new mark until the last one has smoothed out, and sometimes the previous mark vanishes for a second and then returns. This happens when I use both the Apple Pencil and my finger, so I'm thinking it's an issue with Illustrator and not the pencil. 


If anybody has any insight on how to fix this, I'd very much so appreicate it! This lag is making the creating process rather jarring and it's hard to maintain a flow of any sort.
