The updated iOS version of this VPN has been described by the developers as the best iOS app they’ve ever made. They labelled the iOS version as a “reimagined” and “reengineered” upgrade that is chock full of new features and improvements. Just like its Windows counterpart, the iOS version has been given a visual overhaul and now sports a sleeker and more refined appearance.
