IPVanish iOS 8 App Update

IPVanish continues to add new features to their popular VPN software.  The latest release of their iOS app adds new functionality.  When Apple released iOS 8 it broke a lot of VPN apps.  The same has happened with major relases of iOS in the past.  VPN providers have been modifying apps to work with iOS 8.  When I first saw that IPVanish released an iOS 8 app I assumed it was just a fix.  To my surprise the app adds new functionality.

IPVanish iOS 8 App

In addition to being fully compatible with the latest Apple iOS 8 release, the IPVanish iOS app adds a number of new features.  Here’s a look at some of the new enhancements for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices:

  • Single-Swipe VPN Connection – You now have the ability within the app to toggle your VPN connection off/on with ease.
  • Visible IP Address and Server Connection – View your publicly viewable IP address before connecting to IPVanish as well as the server location and IP address used once you are connected.
  • Automatic Connection – Using multiple wireless networks on your iOS devices? Using the advanced settings, automatically connect to the IPVanish VPN service while accessing public WiFi or similar networks.
  • Persistent Connection – Stay connected to IPVanish even if your device is in standby or locked screen mode. This feature is also found in the advanced settings.
