Wikipedia has been answering our big and small questions since its introduction in 2001. An updated Wikipedia app fully integrates with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, offering more encyclopedic compatibility and convenience than ever before.

Like to surf for info after-hours? A night-reading feature lets you search Wikipedia in comfort without turning on a bedroom reading lamp so bright it keeps your partner awake. Customize your midnight read using dark mode, text size control, and image dimming.

Places, a map and location search feature, quickly locates information about your city park or faraway Easter Island. Explore Feed pulls up articles and photos, recommending readings based on prior searches, and featured articles curated by the trusted Wikipedia community.

People who crave 20/20 hindsight can look back at what happened this day in history.

Adjust your screen color (try sepia or dark mode) or make your text size bigger or smaller depending on your preference.

An improved search feature lets you glean facts from articles or by using Spotlight. You can even search using emoji 🗿

Speed matters. Set up a handy Today widget to either continue reading where you left off, open a featured article, or see the top read stories. Just swipe to the left of the home screen to access. 

What if you only speak Hawaiian? Mai hopohopo! Hauʻoli! (Don’t worry! Be happy!) With information in nearly 300 Wikipedia-supported languages, you’ll be able to find facts in the lingo you like. 

Wikipedia lets you save articles to read later, even offline. You can search and sort saved articles, then organize them by folder. Sync reading lists across your Apple devices, and easily share articles on social media or by email.
