Microsoft is working very hard on regularly releasing new features for its Windows 10 default browser Microsoft Edge on both iOS and Android. The company has been regularly pushing out new features on both the rival platforms.

Keeping with the same trend the Redmond Giant today pushed out another new update for its Microsoft Edge browser for iOS users. The latest update comes with some important new features for Apple users.

The latest Edge browser update for iOS brings support for split view feature which is exclusively for iPad users. The spilt view feature is the same feature which was available for Windows 8 devices earlier.

The split view feature has similar resemblance to the one on Windows 8 devices and works in similar way on the iPad. iPad users will be able to run two apps on the screen regularly along with the option to choose how much an app can be viewed.

The size of the apps are automatically resized which should fit the screen of the iPad. This update also allows users to use two apps at a time by letting them post status update on one app and view chats on another app without having to move between apps.

The latest update to the Microsoft Edge also adds the option to let users add or edit top sites on the new tab page. Users will also be able to see a new sync progress indicator for the favorites and reading list.

Microsoft Edge will now display organization managed favorites especially for the Enterprise users on the iPad. The latest features and improvements released are only currently available for iPhone and iPad users who are currently part of Apple’s Test Flight Program of Microsoft Edge. The update also comes with the regular set of bug fixes and performance improvements to the Edge browser for iOS devices.

After successful testing and some necessary corrections after feedback from testers, Microsoft plans to release the same features to the public version of the browser on both iPhone and iPad respectively in the coming weeks or days.
