Google has taken a long break from updating branded apps for the iOS platform. The pause was especially long with the Chrome browser. Google today released the first Chrome update for iPhone and iPad in November 2020.
Chrome for iOS skipped the January (version 88) and March (version 89) updates, notably lagging behind the steel platforms. And today’s update does not correct the injustice – Chrome version 87.0.4280.163 has become available to users. Basically, the update fixes flaws and shortcomings discovered since November. There have also been minor changes to reflect Apple’s new privacy requirements.
The stable version of Chrome 90 should be available on all platforms next week. Perhaps once, Google will not ignore Apple mobile devices, and iPhone and iPad users will receive new features simultaneously as users of Android smartphones and tablets.
