Launched in November, Microsoft’s Edge web browser for the iPad and iPhone always struck me as a product that was released so MS could check off another box, but it looks like I was wrong.
Microsoft released a new version of the Edge browser for iOS yesterday that included a number of updates:
Here’s what’s new in this update:
- Sign in with a school or work account
- On iPad, press the Command key of your attached keyboard to see available shortcuts
- Improved Hub design
- Read books on the go
-Books from the Microsoft Store
-Bookmarks, annotation and highlights not supported
According to an early report, the ebooks support is in preview, and there’s no way to shop in the Store from the app. Nevertheless, this is a signpost of MS’s future intentions.
You can find the app in iTunes.
