But the company started to roll out app updates on iOS in February. However, Google Chrome missed out on major updates like version 88 and 89 since the browser did not receive any update on the iOS platform for months. The latest update of Chrome is version 87.0.4280. Google is also gearing up for the launch of Chrome version 90 for all platforms, which is scheduled for the coming weeks.
