Exploring DApps on iOS

MEW wallet allows users to seamlessly interact with DApps through several methods:

If you’re an Android user, please see 'Interacting with DApps on MEW wallet Android’.


Interacting with DApps using built-in browser

Step 1. Go to the Browser tab.

Step 2. Type in the name of the DApp you are searching for in the search bar, or click on one of the recently visited and bookmarked sites.

Step 3. Read the warning about visiting third-party sites and confirm.

The in-app browser allows you to visit any website, much like a desktop browser. When you use the MEW wallet browser, you are visiting third-party websites. They are not affiliated with MEW. Being able to visit a site in the MEW browser does not mean that MEW knows about or endorses that site.

Step 4. MEW wallet should connect to the DApp automatically. If not, find a 'Connect wallet' button, and select MetaMask, Trust, or Browser/web3 wallet as method of connection. To switch the account you are connecting with, tap on the account dropdown on the top left of the screen.

Step 5. To close out the DApp and head back to the DApp browser, go ahead and click on the ‘X’ in the upper right corner. After doing that, the app will close out and now appear in the ‘Recents’ area under the search field.

Users can also delete apps from the recent by clicking on the small ‘x’ in the upper right-hand corner.
