Save the file as a Photoshop PDF, then open the PDF on your iPhone in a PDF viewer. (That assumes you created the vector image in Photoshop using the vector tools).  Else save it as a PDF from whichever application you've used, you can also save it as a SVG if that's an available export/saving format.

Doesn't help. I receive files in ai and eps that I need to view when on the road before I forward them on. Need to view in the format sent to me...

download the Creative Cloud app for iOS, drop the AI file into Creative Cloud folder from desktop computer, and you'll be able to preview the file and forward/link to msg from the Creative Cloud app on your phone.

[moderator note] Moved to Illustrator (vector) forum from Photoshop General forum.

You send a LINK in an email and the person at the other end should be able to download the actual file in that case as far as I'm aware.

  1. Locate the AI file, and tap
  2. Tap on Copy Link
  3. Then Compile the email and Paste the link into the email

Hi, Thank you Cari - but the whole point of this is so I can view on my phone BEFORE I forward to somebody. Its for when I'm on the road (not at my desk) and need to check it before sending on. Thus my original question can I open vector files on my iphone??

You can still use the Creative Cloud folders workflow it has full collaborative support, and you don't need to be the person who drops the AI file into a folder and shares it initially.

See also: Collaborate on folders and libraries from Creative Cloud account

and : Sync and share files and folders with collaborators |

duncanc5868268  Hello, were you ever able to get a definitive answer on this? I am trying to do the same thing, and if you have figured it out I’d like to just do whatever you did rather than go through the steps that weren’t helpful to you. Thanks!

I have an amazingly easy solution / tweak

1. Tap that ai file to open

2. It will open up the Share Sheet

3. Tap Print

4. Pinch to zoom that file to preview

So Simple!!

Or if you want to use app Documents by Readdle allows you to preview Ai files !!

I couldn’t get the adobe creative cloud app to allow me to view my AI files that I received through email. I couldn’t even get it to save the files from email. However, I have the Dropbox app on my phone and when you upload to it, you can preview AI files!
