Microsoft made its Edge browser for iOS available to all iPhone users in November, promising at that time that support for tablets would come in the future. The software maker is now updating its Edge iOS preview application to include iPad support today. I've had the opportunity to briefly test Edge on iPad, and it's largely what you'd expect. Microsoft has extended the interface for the largest screen on the iPad, and features like "continue on PC" remain, along with options to switch from a clear theme to a dark one.
However, it is a fairly basic iPad application. Microsoft has not included support for the split screen of iOS 11, so it can not run the browser along with another application. That's disappointing, but it's still in the preview, so assistance can arrive before the browser opens for all iPad users. Microsoft still does not support the synchronization of tabs between a Windows PC and the iPad or iPhone versions of Edge, but the company previously promised that it is working on that feature.

If you are a Microsoft Edge tester on iOS, you can download the preview immediately from TestFlight. For everyone else, the main Edge for iOS should be updated with iPad support in the coming months.
