When Microsoft made the Edge browser available to iPhone users last year, it also said that iPad users would soon be able to use it as well.

The Redmond giant is a company that respects its promise, and so it recently added iPad support for its Edge iOS preview app. If you’re a beta tester, you can already test Edge on your iPad. The latest Microsoft update takes the software version number to 41.12 (12.0.0).

Edge has a brand new UI for the iPad

Edge on iPad features a scaled up interface that perfectly adapts to the tablet’s screen. Other well-known features such as dark/light theme are also available.

Microsoft listed only three improvements on the official release notes:

  • Support for the iPad experience
  • Improved user sign in/out experience
  • Performance improvements

Unfortunately, certain iOS features, such as screen split are currently unavailable. However, let us not forget that this Edge version is still work in progress and Microsoft has enough time to improve it.

It is worth mentioning that tab syncing between a Windows computer and the iPad is not available. This means that you won’t be able to switch between devices and resume your browsing session on another device.

Edge for iOS does offer a series of interesting features such as access to Edge bookmarks, synced passwords, extension support, Continuum, and more.

Microsoft should add iPad support for Edge in the coming months.
