What's New

Version 4.5.4

We're hard at work on TED v5, the next major release of our iOS app. We're not quite ready to share what's coming in this new release, but we have a few tweaks and adjustments we want to make to your existing app to get ready for the big update.
We also took some time to fix a few different issues with account sync that could cause it to fail under certain conditions. If you have both an iPhone and an iPad, signing with your account is a great way to see your watch list, favorites, and watch history on both devices. Give it a shot!

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!

Editors' Notes

Gain new perspectives from inspiring talks. 

Sync is slow but working


After thinking to have lost 100 talks out of the 150 I had in my list. I was just gutted.
At the end, the list is limited to 100 !
So I lost 50 of my carefully selected Talks.
I know that is should have liked them but they were from previous versions where there was no limit...
Please increase the list !!!

Developer Response

We've now fixed this issue, so if you go back into the app, you should see all 150 talks. Worst case, if you log out and back in, they should be retrieved. Thanks again for pointing this out.

App keeps losing talks saved in my favourites list

Helena Troy

I really love TED Talks and find them inspiring and fascinating.

I love the app quite a bit less...... for some reason, the app keeps ‘losing’ favourited talks from my favourites list. Even when I highlight them and come back to them minutes later the highlight has been lost. It’s driving me ever so slightly mad. Pleeeaaaassseee can you fix this? Is there a limit to the number of talks I can favourite?
