Although Microsoft still has a lot of work to do until Edge becomes real competition to Chrome and Firefox, the company didn’t hesitate in creating a standalone app for Android and iPhone users.

And while it’s still in beta for iOS users, there are some important updates being released. Many iPhone users complained that their phone was heating up while using Edge, and yesterdays’s update is meant to fix that issue.

Edge improved with battery optimization on iPhone

There are some other minor improvements, as follows:

  • Battery usage optimization: some of you told us that your phone heats up or otherwise consumes more battery when you use Edge. We looked under the hood and found a few optimizations. Let us know if you continue to experience high battery consumption.
  • Improved left/right swiping to go back and forth between pages.
  • Added support for actions and activities extensions, such as sharing sites, saving sites to Notes, adding sites to Pocket, etc.

Of course, many other bugs have been squashed, as well. Microsoft also noted they are aware of some issues with desktop view.

Microsoft is no longer an adept of bloody wars with rival companies. Instead, it actually learns from them and tries to make money by selling products and services to their audiences.

Thus, if you are interested in running Microsoft Edge on your iPhone, go ahead and check it out.
