Procreate has confirmed that its M1 update for the new iPad Pro (2021) is now live and available, after teasing its release last month.

Procreate says the release button has been hit on the latest update, but that it might take time to roll out from region to region. In a teaser last month the company said:

With a host of inclusive new accessibility features, plus full optimization for the powerful new M1 chip that takes Procreate to the next level.

Experience desktop power with the best stylus in the world. Thanks to the astonishing performance of the new M1 powered iPad Pro, high-resolution, richly layered artworks perform up to 4X faster.
Apple's new iPad Pro features up to 2TB of storage and 16GB of RAM, as well as 5G and a new Liquid Retina XDR display in the 12.9-inch model, making it the best iPad in recent memory.
