Microsoft Edge could be headed to iPad soon

Microsoft launched its Edge browser for iPhone late in 2017, but iPad support was notably missing. Now, it looks like Microsoft could fill that gap relatively soon.

Sean Lyndersay, a product manager on the Microsoft Edge team, revealed in a recent Twitter post that an iPad version is currently in internal testing and is "looking great." Further, Microsoft is hoping to start testing Microsoft Edge for iPad with TestFlight users early in February (via OneTechStop).

That's good news for beta testers who already own an iPad. There's no projected timeline available for a wide release to everyone, but that will depend on how things go during testing.

This also comes after Lyndersay recently revealed that Edge for iOS and Android was released or in the process of rolling out to most English- and French-speaking markets, along with Germany, Austria, Portugal, and Brazil.

Microsoft Edge is intended to bridge the gap between devices for heavy Edge users, allowing them to easily sync their passwords, favorites, and reading lists between mobile and desktop. The mobile app also includes a "Continue on PC" feature, which lets you pick up where you left off on your mobile device.

If you want to check out Edge for iPhone now, you can grab the app for free now from Apple's App Store.
