While the previous updates first and foremost were bug fixes, the most recent release provides several new features.

Also new is the ability to change the background image of the home screens. Users can either use an own photo or choose an image offered by Opera. The Norwegian company has also expanded the integration of PDF files. Users can display PDFs from the browser now directly in iBooks or other PDF applications.

Once an open site plays music, an animated graphic equalizer now displays this in the corresponding tile icon on the homescreen. The browser also plays music, if he works in the background. It is also possible to control a music Web site from the iOS lock screen.

A blog entry that was also accelerated wiping gesture page navigation and improved the tile recognition for websites. The tiles had been introduced as a replacement for tabs Opera. The symbols can appear only in the right size, if Web sites contain a corresponding HTML code.
