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:

Introducing quantum resistant WireGuard connections in IVPN apps

Quantum computing poses a threat to VPN security due to its potential to break traditional encryption algorithms much faster. In an attempt to mitigate this risk and provide quantum resistance, a PresharedKey (PSK) is now used in addition to existing encryption.
