What's New

Hello everyone,

Before we get to what’s new, we have some important information for iOS 6 users: This is our last planned release which will support iOS 6.

For users who have iOS 6 devices, you can continue use the app for the foreseeable future, but will no longer receive app updates after 4.1.5. You will also be able to re-install 4.1.5 on any of your iOS 6 devices, even if you delete it.

For users with newer devices, you will be unaffected by this change, except that we have some exciting updates in the pipeline that were only possible after dropping support for iOS 6.

Now for what’s new:

* Lead images now load faster and fade in smoothly
* Switch article languages quicker with the new button in the toolbar
* More article layout improvements
* More reliable loading of articles from the cache
* Added a link to the FAQ in Settings > More
* New translations (Thanks to all our translators!)
* Fix crash on startup for some device languages (Like Norwegian)
* Several other crash fixes


Thanks to everyone for using the Wikipedia iOS app and helping us make it better.
