At first it worked just fine but after five minutes it started to lag. So enoying! My iPad Pro 2018 is new, also the pen, and I only have three layers in the file.

what to do?

I have a non-Apple pen designed for use on the iPad (2018 iPad Pro 11-inch.) It works great in other apps such as Apple's Notes, with very fluid responsive strokes, just like writing with a pencil, but in Photoshop there is a slight delay as I write or draw with the brush tool. Perhaps 1/2 second between a downward stroke and the image appearing. I agree that is annoying. Just enough delay that I find it difficult to use in Photoshop. It may be useful to confirm that your pen is working properly in other apps. Then we would know if this is a Photoshop problem.

Thanks for your reply! Same here - the pen works just fine in other apps, the delay only occurs in Photoshop.

I'll jump in here- Turning smoothing off, restarting hasn't solved the issue.  (I have the same issue as the originator of this thread, but using a 2nd gen iPad Pro.)

Thanks!  Looking foward to resolving this.

It doesn't make any difference, I'm afraid. Thanks anyway!

Hi there, in fact I also have faced the lagging issue while using the Apple Pencil ( but I have been experiencing this when trying to highlight points in PDF books on my IPad using the highlighter option in Adobe PDF reader. I would appreciate if someone can provide some help or guidance on how to resolve this issue.

My I pad is in tune with the latest software updates from apple.

Any suggestion or help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
