Today, Microsoft finally released a major update for its Edge browser on iOS. After prolonged testing, version 93.961.47 is rolling to all Edge Stable users on iPhone and iPad.
What makes this release special is that this is the first stable version of Edge for iOS with a unified codebase across all platforms. Several months ago, Microsoft promised to bring all versions of Edge under a single umbrella with a unified code. That makes the development process much faster and easier, as developers no longer need to code a single feature three times for desktop platforms, iOS, and Android. Also, this helps Edge mobile keep up with the competition.
Android was the first mobile platform to offer a new generation of Microsoft Edge to all users in the Stable channel. On iOS, though, Microsoft has taken much more time to test and polish things before shipping the browser to the public.
If you use Microsoft Edge on iPhone or iPad, you can download version 93 from the App Store. That is a huge jump from the previous release, 46.3.30. Users can now enjoy significantly improved performance and new features, such as sending tabs across devices, improved translator, refreshed UI, a new password generator, and various bug fixes. Here is the full changelog.
What's new in Microsoft Edge 93 for iOS
- We’ve redesigned the browser to be faster, safer, and easier to use
- You can now access saved passwords in Microsoft Edge from any app
- Use Password Generator, a built-in tool to generate strong passwords when signing up for new accounts or changing passwords across the web
- Send your current web page to your other signed-in devices
- General bug fixes and performance improvements
You can download Microsoft Edge for iOS from the App Store using this link. Note that preview versions of Edge for iOS are not publicly available and require an invitation from Microsoft to join a closed beta testing. As of now, Microsoft does not accept new Edge insiders because Apple's testing mechanisms allow no more than 10,000 testers.
