Hey everyone! We’re excited to announce the release of ExpressVPN v4 for iOS! Customers with devices running on iOS8 can nowdownload it in the app store.

What’s new in ExpressVPN 4.0?

This is a HUGE update. The biggest changes are:

1. Our full set of VPN locations is now available on iOS.

Now our iOS users have access to our full list of VPN locations!

If you have a favorite, just hit the star next to it and it will float to the top of your list for easy access.

2. You can now connect with one click!

No more going through your system settings to connect to our servers. With ExpressVPN 4.0, you can connect and disconnect directly through the app.

As with the old app, when you’re connected to the VPN, you’ll see a small VPN icon inside a rectangle at the top of your screen.

At this time, we are aware of the following known problems:

#1: Dialogue pops up saying “VPN Connection – Enter your user authentication,” prompts you for a username and password

#2: Dialogue pops up saying “VPN Connection – An unexpected error occurred.”

For a fix to these issues, please read our blog post about known problems for iOS users.

Happy VPNing 🙂
