Opera Mini for iOS Updated to v7.0.5
By on October 29th, 2012

Opera Software has updated Opera Mini for Apple devices, keeping in mind the recently released iOS 6. Opera Mini is among the most popular mobile browsers with about two hundred million users spread across various platforms including J2ME, iOS, and Android. It was the first non-Webkit based browser to be allowed into the App Store.

Opera Mini redirects web-traffic through its servers where the pages are rendered and compressed. The client simply displays a static representation of the pre-rendered webpages. The advantage of this arrangement is that it can result in up to 90% bandwidth saving and increases surfing speed on slower networks. However, this also prevents rich modern web apps from working on Opera Mini.

Opera Mini 7.0.5 includes a bunch of iOS 6 related fixes and integration with the iOS 6 Facebook framework. Other changes mentioned in the release notes are:
- Improved performance when saving large images
- Fixed freeze after sharing via email
- Fixed video playback on youtube.com (iPhone and iPod)
- Performance and stability fixes
- Added support for iOS 4.2

Opera Mini 7.0.5 is a minor incremental update. However, if you are planning to use Opera Mini on iOS 6, you will get better mileage with the latest version.
