Microsoft Edge Making Its Way to the iPad Next Month

Posted on January 31, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in iOS with 27 Comments

Last year, Microsoft made its Edge browser cross-platform by bringing it to Android and iOS. The browser picked up a couple of small improvements over the past few months, but Microsoft is currently busy working on the next big leap for the browser.

Microsoft Edge engineer Sean Lyndersay recently teased the release of Microsoft Edge for iPad on Twitter, as first spotted by Neowin. The browser will be available via TestFlight for iPad users early next month, and it will be later rolled out to everyone else.

It’s not clear how exactly the browser will look or work on an iPad, but we will most likely get a tabbed UI like Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 PCs. Microsoft will probably bring support for Android tablets on Microsoft Edge for Android later on, which could pave the way for potential Chromebook support in the near-future, too.
