Mi­crosoft brings Edge browser to iOS

Mi­crosoft’s browser fi­nally comes to iOS, re­veals Brad Cha­cos

Break­ing down the bar­ri­ers be­tween your PC and your phone is one of the big­gest goals of the Win­dows 10 Fall Cre­ators Up­date, which is avail­able now. Mi­crosoft has an­nounced that Win­dows 10’s Edge browser is com­ing to iOS. All are de­signed to make shift­ing files and web pages be­tween de­vices easy.

The mo­bile Edge browser syncs with your Mi­crosoft ac­count, so your favourites, his­tory,

Read­ing List, and cus­tom­ized New Tab Page cross over no mat­ter what de­vice you’re work­ing on. Mi­crosoft’s an­nounce­ment post doesn’t spec­ify whether your col­lec­tion of e-books from the Mi­crosoft Store syncs as well, but we’d ex­pect them to do so given the re­cent drive to turn Edge into an e-reader.

The mo­bile ver­sion of Edge also in­cludes a ‘Con­tinue on PC’ but­ton that pushes what­ever you’re look­ing at over to your com­puter. It doesn’t sound like the mo­bile Edge browser syncs re­cent tabs like Chrome does, but this is still a solid start.
