How to Get Microsoft Edge on Your iPhone

Step 1: Open the App Store.
Step 2: Select the Search tab at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Type “microsoft edge” into the field at the top of the screen, then choose the “microsoft edge” search result.
Step 4: Touch the Get button to the right of the Microsoft Edge app.
Step 5: Tap the Install button to download and install the app. You may need to enter your fingerprint or password, depending on your security settings.
Step 6: Select the Open button to launch the Edge app and begin using the browser.
You can then elect to sign in with an existing Microsoft account, create a new account, or skip this step.
