Brave Sync for iOS


Yes, kindly see:



Thanks @chriscat - I got in touch with @michal on GitHub :wink:

Great news though - looking forward to it!!!


Sorry but this synchronization for iOS arrives or not? I was switching from Chrome to Brave on all my devices but maybe I do well to stay with Chrome.



New to the browser! Love it!

Really looking forward to this feature.

If it takes time, really considering switching to Android if it comes to that :wink:

All the best!


I just started using Brave on my MacBook Pro and was trying to sync and realized after searching its not available yet for iOS devices. I have moved to using Brave on my iPad Pro, iPhone XS Max and MBP, but I have to keep going back to Safari since that is where my bookmarks are located.

Security is great, speed is great, sync, is coming . . . hopefully soon.


Any news on the new timeline @michal?

Very much looking forwards to this one!!


Nothing yet, testes found bunch of new bugs which can be seen here

nothing major in my opinion, we are preparing to submit a second beta build to testers with fixes to some of the reported issues


Crikey, I just became a Brave user (on PC, Android, and iOS), discovered sync missing from the iOS version, googled it’s absence, and ended up here in this marathon of a wait for a pretty darn basic feature in any web browser released this century.

Okay, I guess I wait with everyone else :smiley: Hopefully not quite so long as the rest of you! Heh.


Is this the initial round of sync? Looking at it, it looks like it’s all primarily bookmark related?

Is “Passwords” included or is that going to be in a second round?


I heard about syncing tabs and history afterwards


hey looking forward to the sync function! I am not using it only because of that… so for the moment staying on Chrome


First: Bookmarks
Second: Tabs and/or history
Third: Tabs and/or history
Fourth: Passwords

I assume the later sets of sync development for the above features will go a little quicker, as most issues will have been resolved as part of syncing bookmarks?


There are still intermittent problems with sync, look at android and desktop threads with regards to sync. These are hard to track as they can’t be always reproduced.
I would prefer to first polish the reliability issues then proceed to adding more stuff to it, but it is a product manager’s decision afterwards


Couldn’t agree more - a working feature is better than just delivering a feature because people are shouting :wink:

@michal I see Brave was updated over the weekend :grin: and it looks like some sync features were included which is great news!!!


That’s true, Sync should be live now :slight_smile:
Thank you all for your patience. There’s still few bugs here and there, but at least you should be able to sync your bookmarks now.

If you have not received a prompt to update to 1.9 yet, you need to go to the app store and update manually.

I see that you just enable the Sync function in the iOS app what I was so disappointed to see that the Sync is only for bookmarks, and I cannot see the opened Tabs (and history) from my other devices!!
This is a key sync function i am using in the Chrome app… unfortunately until Brave do not have this functionality I will stay with Chrome.
Please tell me that I have not seen some menu where I can find the sync of opened tabs cross devices or that will come very soon!

What??? Only Bookmarks? Christ.


You would need patience of a saint :innocent:


In theory, now that sync is there for bookmarks, the next set of sprints should be faster for the other areas that need syncing, as the framework/code-base is likely now 95% of the way there!

@michal - is that correct? As I mentioned here and you mentioned here?
