New Private Tab by click and hold on app icon

When I click and hold the brave icon on my iPhone it brings up an option to open a “New Private Tab”. This function used to work but now it just opens a normal tab.

Hello @Dasrockness, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Are you still seeing the option that says open a new private tab alongside the one that says open a new tab or only one of them? Do they have the same behavior?

Could you please share a screenshot? Also try deleting cookies and cache? In case it does not work installing/uninstalling the App and Let us know if the issue persists.

Regards.

Good question! Included a screenshot. I have both options for new tab and new private tab.

New private tab is now intermittent. My iPad will never open a private tab from the shortcut
