#1

Although I know that you guys are actively working on the Sync feature for mobile, have created this submission for you to get visibility on how much the community is looking forward for this.

Hi @badescuga,

Thanks for your feedback. The team is working on sync for mobile (iOS and Android). I think it’s almost done and will landed in the future release.

Thank you for your patience. :slight_smile:

Bump. Any update on this? Seemed pretty close back in Sept. Has it been released?


#4

Not yet @tengoal. But it’s nearly there.

Thanks for your patience. :slight_smile:
Best.

Hi Brave Team.
Looking for an update on this. I also haven’t seen any updates in the Github for Sync since Oct 2017 that appears to be the last release. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place.

At any rate; any updates?

Thanks.

Sync is scheduled to release for 1.6, if you look at that branch (1.6) you will see continual work on sync related items for iOS. We will have at least one more minor release before 1.6, but work is being done! :smiley:

Mobile sync would be nice. How far out are we do you think?


#8

Definitely awaiting this awesome feature!!! Any update on timeline?


#9

Same request here :wink:


#10

Any day now!!
:hugs:

I’m very much needing this so my desktop and mobile OS are in sync. I’m running Brave on Linux mint too. Solid!

Thanks for your work guys. I am sure it’ll be released soon.

I am running 1.6 on my iOS device, but I do not see sync there yet. Still hoping. :smiley:


#13

Bump. Any updates on the state of Sync for iOS Mobile?


#14

Hi all,

It seems the Sync for mobile is not there yet and removed from 1.6 milestones like previously mentioned. I believe it still being worked on. Since the sync is encrypted, it may take more time to implement it. Once it’s ready, I think the team will announce it.

And still no ETA so far.
Thank you all for your patience.

Hey everyone! I know this is an extremely important feature for many people, and wanted to provide a bit more insight into where sync is and what is coming down the pipeline.

Sync on iOS has currently been scheduled for after the Brave iOS web rendering engine upgrade[1]. We are actually in the process of swapping out the entire underlying codebase. This will provide a more robust underlying foundation, as well as providing increased speed and better website compatibility. You can follow along with what is going on, by checking out our new project, brave-ios. The timeline of this project is still not completely nailed down, but we are making aggressive advances.

We are well aware of the need for sync. Sync on Android and Desktop[2] will land following the new chromium fork launch. The iOS team has taken this scheduling and followed suite. Drastically, improving the underlying core of this project will also benefit sync’s functionality, as it gives us time to harden components like our database.

Thank you all so much for your encouraging words, and for your interest in Brave. It only gets better from here!


[1] Brave iOS is currently on Apple’s older UIWebView, and we will be upgrading to the much newer WKWebView.

[2] Sync is a beta feature on desktop platforms currently, but will also be updated when it launches on mobile platforms for compatibility and stability.
