Dark mode support, Tracking Prevention added to Microsoft Edge beta on iOS
If you use the Microsoft Edge beta on your iOS device, an update has been pushed out that takes the app to version 44.9.0. You can download the update from the Test Flight app found in the App Store. Once that has been done, the browser will sync with the native Dark mode option available on iOS 13. Perhaps more importantly, the update adds Tracking Prevention which stops online advertisers and analytical firms from following your location through the Edge browser app.
Spotted by MSPoweruser, the update adds more options to the list of available search engines that can be used with the browser app. It also includes general bug fixes and performance improvements. With the iOS version of Microsoft Edge, you can browse the internet using your voice. You can also visit a website on your phone and continue where you left off on your PC using the Continue on PC feature. There is an InPrivate mode that prevents Edge on your desktop from saving your history, internet files and cookies collected by the mobile Edge app. Hub View makes it easy for you to find and manage your favorite online content, and the app is equipped with a built-in QR code reader.
The version of Microsoft Edge in the App Store is 44.8.7 while as we already pointed out, the beta version in the Test Flight app is running 44.9.0. This means that it shouldn't take too long for the native Dark mode support, the Tracking Prevention and the updated search engine list to be added to the stable version of the Edge browser found in the App Store.
If you own an Android phone, you don't have to feel left out. There is a Microsoft Edge app in the Google Play Store and last month an update arrived that allows Android users to sync the app's Dark theme with the system-wide setting on Android 10, or leave it on Light or Dark mode. On Android though, only the top and bottom borders, including the address bar on the top and the navigation bar on the bottom, are inverted. Most websites appear in their original color.
