NordVPN for iOS: release notes

We call release notes an ode to new features, improvements, squashed bugs, and extra glam added to our app. Stay in the loop on the latest updates in the NordVPN app for iOS. We don’t want you to miss a thing!

NordVPN 5.4.0 (latest)

This is the last version that supports iOS 9 and iOS 10. If your device runs on one of these OS, you will still be able to use NordVPN – it’s just that the latest updates won’t reach you anymore.

NordVPN 5.3.2

Dear bugs, it’s not the same without you. It’s way better now. (Not trying to be mean or anything here. Just making the app experience better.)

NordVPN 5.2.1

You say ‘bug’, we say ‘fixes’. We defeated a bunch of these sneaky creatures to make your app experience smoother.

NordVPN 5.2.0

  • success
    What does driving an F1 racer and using NordVPN app have in common? From now on, it’s NordLynx – our tech built around the WireGuard® protocol to bring you blazing speeds in VPN connections. Fast, secure, and optimized for privacy, NordLynx is a game-changer in your mobile experience. Head to ‘Settings’ and switch to NordLynx in ‘VPN Protocols’ to take it for a test drive!
  • success
    Fixed: sometimes, auto-connect on Wi-Fi wouldn’t work properly if you set it while being on a cellular data network. It’s all sorted out now.

NordVPN 5.1.0

While you’re working on your ‘naughty-or-nice’ score, we continue improving your NordVPN experience. This release contains minor tweaks and bug fixes, all finely wrapped.

NordVPN 5.0.9

We’re back with some glam and user-friendliness:

  • success
    We made the app more thumb-friendly. Now it’s easier to tap the right thing — like the redesigned Settings button, for example.
  • success
    The app widget looks more vibrant in the dark mode now.

NordVPN 5.0.4

  • success
    This release brings more than meets the eye: we’re improving things underneath to make your NordVPN experience even better.

NordVPN 5.0.3

  • success
    Help us improve by rating your connection. Was it like driving an F1 racer? Or rather a slow and bumpy ride? We want to know. Tell us by giving thumbs up or thumbs down in the app.
  • success
    If you have enabled the dark mode on your iPhone and iPad, the NordVPN widget will also go dark. Hello darkness, our new friend…

NordVPN 5.0.0

What's new:

  • success
    It’s really hard not to get overly excited so.. NordVPN 5.0.0 is here! If you’d ask us to describe the new version in a single word, we’d say: versatile. Now you can set a protocol depending on what you’re up to. OpenVPN over UDP, OpenVPN over TCP, or IKEv2 – the choice is yours. The app still runs on IKEv2 as a default.
  • success
    Speaking of newness, we’re bringing out a new server category: obfuscated servers.

What's better:

  • success
    We update the server list every 24 hours – that’s the regular process. On top of that, now we’ll make sure you get the most recent server list each time you update the app.
  • success
    In case of a connection timeout, the app would start misbehaving. Ouch. Now it’s all under control: the ‘not connected’ state will remain until you successfully connect to VPN.
  • success
    A few visual tweaks, which may not shine bright alone but add up nicely to the overall slickness of the app.

NordVPN 4.4.1

This release brings more than meets the eye: we’re improving things underneath to make your NordVPN experience even better.

Love our app? Rate it 5 stars – our engineers will be happy to the moon and back. Or send kudos by leaving a review. Getting your feedback is always super space-tastic!

NordVPN 4.4.0

  • success
    Update the app and spot the difference: we’ve kind of reimagined the home screen. Expect more details about your connection and a few nice tweaks for better usability!
  • success
    You can now add NordVPN shortcuts to Siri directly from our app. Connect and disconnect from VPN by simply asking Siri nicely.
  • success
    Also, we’ve added an option to reinstall a VPN profile from our app settings if needed. This way, you don’t have to search for it in your phone settings.
  • success
    Minor bug fixes, of course.
