The preview version of Microsoft Edge for iOS has received another update today, and among the highlights, there is support for 3D Touch.
Microsoft Edge has arrived on Android and iOS with much more functionality this year, and now Microsoft is working hard to make the application a more powerful alternative to existing browsers that dominate the two platforms.
Today's update includes a feature that looks forward to iPhone users as it brings support Touch 3D for the models that come with this technology. By clicking on the Edge icon on the iPhone's home screen, users can now start a voice search, create a new tab, open an InPrivate tab, browse the anonymous website, or launch a QR scanner.
In addition, the new version of Microsoft Edge also includes support for two different extensions, namely LastPass and 1Password. Both password managers are available in the sharing sheet, allowing you to quickly fill in details such as usernames and passwords while browsing the web.
What is very important to note is that these features are only available for the Microsoft Edge preview, and this should not be confused with what is listed for download in the App Store.
Microsoft offers a separate version of the Edge browser as part of the TestFlight program, which has limited positions on private testers, as the company wants to get feedback on all the features before it is publicly released.
No doubt it will not take long before all these features are released in the release App Store, but it all depends on how they work in the preview.
Further updates with support for more apps and extensions are expected in 2018, as Microsoft Edge work for both Android and iOS is fast moving these days.
