What's New

Version 5.3

Fall is in full swing at TED HQ and we've been busy sipping our Pumpkin Spice Lattes and working on improving our in-app audio experience. We introduced a new audio bar last month and are now following that up with a full-screen player!

When you are listening to a talk in the audio player just tap or drag on the audio player to show the full-screen player. The full-screen player includes all the playback controls you've come to expect and also makes it easy to add a talk to your favorites list. We'd love to hear what you think and how we can continue to improve your audio listening experience.

What else made the cut this release?

- We heard your feedback! You can now double-tap the screen while watching video to make the content fill the entire screen.
- When you use our search feature, we now put Topics at the top of the list of results.
- We made a few improvements to our Handoff and Spotlight search integration.
- We fixed a crash on launch that was affecting a few users. If you are still seeing this after updating, please email us!
- We updated to Swift 4.2. The developers were very happy about this.

We hope you enjoy the new release. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at

ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!
