Description of the issue:
How do I open a Private Browsing window on iOS devices

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. I do not know how to open private browsing on iOS devices

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.1.23 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Mobile Device details
Open private browsing window for iPhone & iPad

Additional Information:

It’s definitely not intuitive, but here is how it works, at least on an iPad:

  1. Tap on the square that represents the number of open windows.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap “Private”.
  3. At the bottom of the screen, tap “Done”.

Use the same sequence to go back to the non-private mode.

This did not work on my iPad. After I click the square nothing shows up at the bottom but the + and Done.
