Update Google Chrome

To make sure you're protected by the latest security updates, Google Chrome can automatically update when a new version of the browser is available on your device. With these updates, you might sometimes notice that your browser looks different.

Get a Chrome update when available

Chrome should automatically update based upon your Apple App Store settings. You can check if there's a new version available:

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the App Store.
  2. At the bottom, tap Updates.
  3. In the pending updates, look for Chrome Chrome app.
  4. If Chrome is listed, tap Update to install.
  5. If asked, enter your Apple ID password. The updates will download and install.

If you don’t have the Google Chrome app yet, download it from iTunes.

Get design changes and new features early

When you see changes in Chrome, those changes have usually been tested out in an early version of Chrome called Chrome Beta.

Some of your Chrome features and settings will not be available at this time because of iPhone and iPad constraints. Downloads that require authentication might not work, and the following features and settings had to be removed:

If Apple makes changes to WKWebView to allow these features, we will add them back in.
