Opera Touch will replace Opera Mini on iOS

Hello everyone

As of August 2019, Opera Mini is delisted from the Apple App store as we are focusing our iOS efforts on the new and award-winning Opera Touch browser. You will still be able to use Opera Mini for iOS for some time, but we recommend that you check out Opera Touch. Please note that this is only for iOS and will not impact any of our Android products. 

By switching to Opera Touch, you will get yourself a new and modern lightweight browser that combines high-end technology with impactful aesthetics. These unique characteristics, along with its high quality design and creative user interface, are what made it winner of the prestigious Red Dot Communication Award 2018 and IF GOLD Award 2019 .

Opera Touch incorporates essential features that give you more control over your browsing for a faster and improved experience on the web. It is also the best companion for your Opera browser for desktop, as it connects seamlessly with your computer through My Flow. This unique feature allows you to share files between all your various devices, so you can have them on hand when you need them. Share notes with yourself, links to online images and videos, as well as your own files, and access them immediately. 

Here are five reasons why Opera Touch should become the new browser for your favourite iOS device.

1. Faster searches on the web 

Opera Touch is always ready to go. Its user interface has been optimized to speed up your browsing by presenting the search bar immediately upon opening the app. This characteristic has been proven to reduce the number of steps involved when searching in comparison to other mobile browsers. 

2. Comfortable browsing on large display smartphones

Opera Touch has also been designed to make your browsing more comfortable on smartphones with big screens. A Fast Action Button is located at the bottom of the screen, allowing you to switch between your open tabs using only one hand. 

This is a unique characteristic of Opera Touch. It is the only mobile browser for iOS that provides a solution for users who love smartphones with big displays but find it uncomfortable to control their devices with one hand, especially on the go. And for those who prefer it, the Fast Action Button can be quickly switched out for classic navigation.

3. Smoother browsing without annoying cookie dialogs

Cookie dialogs have been flooding the internet since the introduction of new web regulations. More and more websites are adding cookie dialogs that request your approval before reaching the content you are interested in. In order to fix this problem, we’ve incorporated a cookie dialog blocker into Opera Touch that removes the cookie dialog alerts that appear on websites.

To enable this feature, go to the bowser’s settings (three dots in the top-right corner of your browser) and turn on Block cookie dialogs.

4. Improved ad blocker 

Opera Touch incorporates an improved ad blocker that can now be temporarily suspended for websites of your choice. This gives you additional control over your browsing, allowing you to choose whether you want to see the ads from your favourite websites or not. 

You can switch off the ad blocker in the settings menu under site options.

5. First browser for iOS with Web 3 support and crypto wallet

As we’ve recently announced, Opera Touch now features a built-in crypto wallet and Web 3 support. This lets you interact seamlessly with the next generation of Web 3 applications on the Ethereum blockchain without the need for additional extensions.
