Just like the PC and Mac counterparts, the latest stable version of Google Chrome for Android and iOS devices is version 54. Of course, since the browser would meet different kinds of problems as well as have other needs on different mobile operating systems, the build number for each major version is different.
Google Chrome for Android
The last time the Chrome development team released a post detailing an update for Google Chrome on Android was October 31, 2016.
In a blog post on the Google Chrome Releases blog, it was announced that version 54.0.2840.85 was released and included fixes for:
- CVE-2016-5196: an issue labeled as CRITICAL that was found out by Robert Miller and Georgi Geshev of MWR Labs while working on the Zero Day Initiative of Trend Micro. The issue was cross-origin data access.
- CVE-2016-5197: an issue labeled as HIGH discovered by Tencent Keen Security Lab, again, while working on the Zero Day Initiative of Trend Micro. The issue was an arbitrary intent scheme opening.
While the October 31 update garnered a blog post, there have been subsequent updates as the last update Chrome had on Android was rolled out on November 8, 2016. These updates were for bug fixes as well as performance improvements.
Google Chrome for iOS
The latest build version for iOS is 54.0.2840.91. This update was rolled out on November 4, 2016 and fixed the following issues:
- bookmark icons that weren’t displaying properly
- issues with phone number detection in web pages
Apart from those issues listed above, the update also included stability improvements as well as other bug fixes.
Google Chrome has always been a trusted browser on desktop devices. Thankfully, the same thing can be said for its mobile counterpart both on iOS and Android devices. With an upcoming major release this December, it’s exciting to see what Chrome has in store for the future.
