Hello Everybody, I am a graphic designer from Argentina (South America). I have recently purchased a macbook air with M1 chip and apple silicon. I have tried the regular version of Illustrator, but it has many glitches and it constantly freezes my computer. 

 

Looking for a solution to the problem I discovered the beta version recently launched and optimized for M1 chips, I downloaded the beta 25.3.1 and have been using it for two days, It works REALLY great.  So I want to buy it to get permanent access to the program.

 

I have talked with sales, and they told me that I should buy the "regular" version of Illustrator and then talk with technical support in order to get access to the beta for the time of my subscription. 


Does anyone know if this is correct?

If not, How can I purchase the beta 25.3.1 ?

Beta/prerelease is in testing mode and not released for sale. So you cannot purchase a beta.

Soon will come out of beta and you will be able to purchase.

I'm confused. Do you have a CC subscription already? What's stopping you continuing to use the beta?

As long as you have a subscription you can have access to the beta.

If you've done that successfully you'll see the new category Prerelease in the CC Desktop App.

Listed are all currently available apps of all prerelease programs you joined. In my case the InDesign/InCopy, Illustrator and Bridge prerelease versions:
