The update added stylus tilt support for Apple Pencil, and improved the pressure curve and stroke quality for Apple's stylus. Astropad now also offers sharper image quality on the iPad Pro and reduced latency, giving users an overall better and more responsive experience.

The new Astropad features require an update for the iPad version, available through the App Store, and an update to version 1.3.5 on the Mac, available as an in-app download.
