A day before, Microsoft announced Edge web browser for Android and iOS devices. Due to restrictions in Apple App Store for beta apps, Microsoft limited the Edge iOS beta only to Windows Insiders. Today, Microsoft is removing the restriction allowing anyone to sign-up for Edge iOS beta and give it a try. Sign-up for the beta program here.
Spread the word: we're opening up the Edge iOS beta to anyone, even if they aren't on a PC running an Insider build. https://t.co/GFZHhZn3zW
