Microsoft Brings Breaking news alerts To Latest Edge beta for iOS Update

Microsoft’s strategy to entice consumers with its Edge browser is chucking it with features that satisfy every need and this comes with a relatively rapid update cycle. The latest update sees the inclusion of breaking news alerts, along with annotations in books, and much more. You’ll have to enroll in the Microsoft Edge beta through Apple’s TestFlight program to access these features early. Otherwise, look forward to this update rolling out to everyone in the coming weeks.

The main updates here are the additions of breaking news alerts and annotations in books which is a little limited. While you can view the annotations, you’re not allowed to ink on PDFs.

However, in addition, this release brings the ability to be signed into both work and school accounts while keeping their browsing histories separate. You can also now organize your favorites folder however you want, and a new “What’s new” section in settings will keep you up-to-date with the latest features.

Here is all that came through in this update

  • Users with both personal and work/school accounts that require both running simultaneously on Edge can now do so, with a toggle to keep the respective browsing histories separate.
  • Items in the Favorites folder can now be reorganized.
  • Book annotations can now be viewed by users (barring PDF free-form inking, however).
  • Users now have the option to receive breaking news alerts.
  • New ‘What’s new and tips’ link in settings
  • New additions to the settings menu will have a blue dot next to them when unopened
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes!
