What you need to know
- The new Edge icon is now available on iOS.
- Beta testers on iOS can grab the icon with the latest update.
- Presumably, the new icon will launch for everyone around January 15 alongside the Chromium Edge for desktop launch.
The Microsoft Edge beta on iOS now has a new icon that's in line with the icon Microsoft started rolling out to Edge testers on desktop in late 2019. The icon revamp comes ahead of the full launch for the new Edge on desktop on January 15. It also follows the Android beta getting a similar icon revamp earlier this week.
From the release notes:
- A new look and feel, plus an updated navigation for easier access to features like search, favorites, and more.
- We've also made some general bug fixes and performance improvements.
The new Edge for desktop is set to release on January 15 after months of testing. Presumably, we'll see the new icon and navigation improvements launch for everyone on the mobile apps around the same time. Additionally, you should expect to see the ability to sync your passwords, favorites, and more with the new version of Edge once it's officially available.
If you're interested in testing Edge beta releases, you can find downloads for all platforms at the Microsoft Edge Insider site. Note that the iOS beta requires that you be accepted into the TestFlight program, which has limited slots available.
