Google redirects results despite Brave Shields (iOS)

Hello. When I installed Brave, I expected that it would stop all sorts of click tracking as advertised.

However, the first thing I tried didn’t work - Google search results are still redirecting me to a Google URL before getting me to the result page and I still can’t long press a link (on iOS) to get the actual result URL. The “Don’t Track Me Google” extension that I use on desktop works great, so I know that it’s doable.

What gives? This would have been the first type of tracking that I would have removed in a privacy-oriented browser…

Update: Looks like someone is working on implementing it here - https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/23315
