What's New

Version 5.2.0

The TED app is ready for iOS 12! We're just as excited the release as you are and have made sure that our app runs at its best on Apple's latest offerings.

In addition to the iOS 12 fixes, we have tried to focus on sanding down some rough edges around the app so that we offer the best TED viewing experience we can.

- We've moved our settings for adjusting your download preferences and subtitle language in-app. You can find it under the My TED tab.
- We added a feedback screen under our new Settings screen as well so its even easier to get in touch with us. You're still welcomed to email us if you prefer, of course!
- When tapping on an action button on our playlist or talk screens we added a highlighted state so it's more intuitive.
- There's now an animation that occurs when adding an item to your watch list or favorites to give a bit more visual context.
- We added a parallax effect to our playlist and talk screens when you are scrolling. Why? It just feels nicer.
- We fixed a few potential crashes that could occur when the app was entering the background.

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!

Editors' Notes

Be inspired by some of the brightest minds of today.

Great app, but can be a little buggy

Steven Sandbrook

Highly recommend this fantastic little app. For browsing TED’s vast range of brilliant and fascinating videos, it can’t be beaten. However I have experienced quite a few issues when navigating within videos, and the app has occasionally refused to sync for several days or even weeks. The bottom line? I use it and support it because it can only get better, and the content is amazing.

Great updated app!


Please include in next update: minimise volume icon when adjusting volume while watching a ted talk because it gets in the way :(
