  • Got notification for the update on iOS, but I have a doubt: I sync favorites, passwords and reading list with my personal computer Windows 10, if I update the app for IOS will I be able to continue syncing until release for the new Edge on Windows 10? For Windows 10 there is no update available so far on my PC.
  • January 15th, I was told is the PC launch date for new Edge.
  • Yes, currently you can decide if the iOS Edge syncs with "Legacy Edge" or "new Edge". Having said that I always found Edge syncing unexplicably finicky so the experience may vary.
  • I sent You guys a tip with screenshots of this update almost 2 weeks ago.
