Do you want to save and download pages for offline view in the Edge app? Learn how to download the page and save to Files on iPhone or iPad.

The Edge app allows you to save webpages to view them in offline mode or without an internet connection. However, it does not support saving as an HTML file.

You need to save the page as a PDF file for offline access. This file can be viewed on any PDF Viewer app or using the built-in viewer.
