After updating the Chrome desktop browser to version 46Google has now started rolling out the updated Chrome browser for iOS devices. The new update brings iOS 9 split-view multitasking for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4, along with the autofill feature. The update is now available to download from Apple’s App Store.

With the new split-view multitasking functionality, users can now have Google Chrome and another app running side by side. However, this feature is restricted to iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and the iPad Pro, which is yet to become available.

Autofill forms is another feature that this update brings, which is compatible with iPads, iPhones and iPad Touch that run Google Chrome app. With this feature, users can store information such as names, addresses and credit card details, just like you do on the desktop browser.

A lot of people shop on the go using their smartphones and tablets, and Google thinks that the autofill feature would make it faster and easier to make those purchases. The App Store changelog also mentions about improved handling of RTL languages. For those who are unaware, RTL means right-to-left, the direction in which some languages are read. Although a small update, if you use Google Chrome a lot on your iPad or iPhone, grab the latest version now.
