This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Microsoft Edge, now available on iOS, creates one continuous browsing experience for Windows 10 users across their devices. Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat. Familiar Microsoft Edge features like the Hub allow users to organize the web in a way that cuts through the clutter, making it easier to find, view and manage their content on-the-go. Microsoft Edge is designed for Windows 10 users to browse the web how they need to, wherever they are, without disrupting their flow.
Continue on PC: Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by seamlessly moving content between your mobile device and PC (requires Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update).
Data Sync: Your favorites, passwords, and reading list are synced across your devices, so no matter the device, your browser is always personalized to you.
Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple.
QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.
Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Ask a question or speak a prompt to use the web in more natural, familiar ways.
InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your PC once you're done.
This browser gives the upper edge!
This browser is really good! Since it is my favorite browser on Windows 10, of course I had to download it when the version for iOS came out! I am very impressed with the speed! Since I have an iPhone 5, and since Safari and Google Chrome are CPU intensive and since iPhone 5's CPU isn't very powerful, I've found that Microsoft Edge works much better than the competitors! The only problem is that sometimes when I am using the voice search and when I try to use it a second time, I have to start the browser again. I am not sure if the exact reason, but I am guessing it is because my RAM is maxed out, since my phone only has 1GB of RAM. But overall it is a very good browsing experience and I would like to say really good job Microsoft! You have made a really good browser on Windows 10, and finally brought it over to iOS. The browser is just as good and I am really happy that it's finally over on mobile phones!
Good but not the best
After exploring Microsoft Edge on the iPhone after its initial release to the App Store I have to say it’s good but not the best.
Where to improve:
I would like the ability to save my privacy settings from my previous browsing session and have them applied to my next browsing session.
Like say for example I toggle the offer to save passwords switch off in my first browsing session I would like it to remain off in each following browsing session following when I toggle that switch off.
Next: when opening a new tab I would like it to go to a home page I set. I do not see the ability to set a home page in the app.
Unless I have to pair my iPhone with my computer to get those settings I have applied to Microsoft Edge on my computer I would like the ability to set those settings similar to how I have Microsoft Edge on my computer.
The good: I have my favorite sites from my computer in the favorites section on my iPhone
I can print articles to the AirPrint enabled printer I use I can set my theme from light to dark like I have on my computer
If possible I would like the settings I have suggested addressed
Fast and reliable!
So far I love Edge on iOS. I was always a Safari user on all my devices, and I was even a Safari user back when it was available for Windows. However, I have finally given up Safari as my go-to browser on my phone. Since switching, the pages I visit load faster and I’ve had far fewer moments of stalling and poorly loaded websites. I’m very happy to also see “dark mode”! The ability to synchronize with the desktop version would be useful to me if I used my gaming PC for heavier web browsing, but I do most browsing with my MacBook and iPhone. I already switched my default mail app to Outlook and now I can browse with Edge! Thank you Microsoft!
