IVPN for iOS now offers DNS over HTTPS

Releases By Juraj Hilje | Posted on March 18, 2021

We are introducing DNS over HTTPS with the latest version of IVPN for iOS (2.3.0), out now.

What are the new options available?

To make use of these changes you need iOS 14 or later installed on your devices.

DNS over HTTPS is only available with OpenVPN and WireGuard protocols. For IKEv2 we had to disable this feature due to a bug in iOS 14 that prevents using NEDNSSettingsManager API and NEVPNManager API together from the same container app, resulting in identifier conflict error. We plan to enable the feature for future iOS releases as soon as Apple fixes this issue.

Further changes in this version:

IVPN offers custom DNS servers which, when accessed through the VPN ensure that your DNS queries are encrypted between your device and our DNS server. This is a necessity, as DNS queries are not encrypted by the DNS protocol and can be easily read by an adversary observing your traffic (even when using HTTPS for your web traffic).
WireGuard Port Forwarding enabled Releases

After the recent addition of Multi-Hop for WireGuard, we are now introducing port forwarding support for Wireguard. Port forwarding allows incoming connections on a specific port, enabling you to run various services on your device that need to be accessible from the Internet.
