The minimum supported operating system is now iOS 11.0.0.
Massively improved Dropbox syncing times - the “Downloading file list” stage should now only take a couple of seconds even when checking thousands of files, whereas previously it could take a couple of minutes.
App icon tweaked to match macOS app.
Scrivener now supports fonts installed on iOS from font provider apps such as Adobe Creative Cloud and Font Diner. (The font chooser UI has been updated to use Apple’s standard font picker to allow for this.)
It is now not possible to remove individual fonts, but all custom fonts can be removed from the system Settings app, under Scrivener > Reset Scrivener.
The search bar in the projects list and binder is now part of the nav bar as per modern conventions, which fixes a number of issues with extra spacing appearing above the search bar or the search bar disappearing on rotating the device.
PDF research files are now shown using Apple’s dedicated PDF view rather than a web view, improving the viewing experience.
Updated outline keyboard shortcuts so that left/right arrow keys now expand folders and groups rather than drill down into them. To drill down, now use Cmd-right or hit return; to go back, hit Cmd-left.
Improved styles so that typographic settings such as small caps, medium, semibold and other features added to styles created on macOS or Windows now work in the iOS version.
Fixed crashes on trying to access project screen help and the Bookmarks and Recents list in some circumstances.

Dozens of other minor bug fixes and enhancements.
Fixed a bug whereby the app could crash on the iPhone if you tapped “Scrivener” to return to the project screen while a search was active.

Fixed bug whereby scriptwriting text written in dark mode could end up permanently white, making it invisible in light mode.
Fixed bug whereby font preview in formatting palette would be unreadable in light mode if selected text was white.
Fixed bug whereby app could crash or throw error when tapping the help button in the projects screen.
Fixed bug whereby deleting a word using Opt-delete would leave the cursor in an unexpected position.
Fixed bug whereby media files could be moved into the Draft folder via the Move To feature if draft folders were contained in the Recents or Bookmarks lists.
Fixed bug whereby footnote text could be saved as white in dark mode, thus making footnotes impossible to read in exported files.
This fix will only impact footnotes created after updating, with older footnotes needing to have their text colour fixed.
New footnotes and comments now use default text formatting.
Fixed bug whereby rows in the search results could be too tall when scrolled into view.
Fixed bug whereby formatting popover nav bar was white in dark mode.
Fixed bug whereby duplicating research documents would result in a sync conflict error upon reopening a project.

“Unstyled Paste” is no longer available in the synopsis area where it has no effect.
Fixed bug whereby synopsis would scroll to the bottom or jerkily scroll up and down while typing in the inspector.
Confusing “level” information removed from VoiceOver text for the binder.
Fixed issue whereby on iOS 15 the multitasking dots at the top of the screen would interfere with the word count/targets control in the nav bar when in full screen mode.
Minor updates to tutorial project.
Fixed bug where nav bar wasn’t hidden when searching, meaning that the “Edit” button was available when it shouldn’t have been.
PDF documents and Compile preview now use iOS’s dedicated PDF viewer rather than a web view. This also fixes an issue whereby the last-viewed page and zoom were not restored when opening a PDF document.
Fixed bug whereby scriptwriting auto-complete list would be shown even if auto-complete was turned off in the settings.
Worked around an iOS bug whereby if you set Scrivener to run in dark mode while the system was using light mode, there would be a gap below the navigation bar.
Slightly increased padding at top and bottom of text on the iPhone.
Disabled scrollilng animation while typing. Hopefully this should improve problems some users have encountered whereby text can disappear beneath the keyboard while typing on an iPhone.
Fixed bug whereby selected rows in the Compile appearance editor would be white in dark mode.
