Microsoft News app on iOS, Android, and Windows 10

The Microsoft News app updated to Version 3.2.27 for Apple’s iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches today.

While this latest update didn’t add any new features, it’s a rather important one as it fixes a fairly frustrating bug that was triggering hyperlinks while a new article was being read within the app. This bug was caused by some sort of technical conflict with the recent iOS 13.1 operating system update that rolled out to iOS devices recently.

Here’s the full release notes:

Fixes an issue where, after the iOS 13.1 update, hyperlinks in articles may be triggered inadvertently while scrolling through the page.
