You can access Canvas from any browser on your iOS device. However, for the best user experience, you should view Canvas via the mobile app for iOS devices.

Please note that mobile browsers are not supported by Canvas, and features may not function as expected compared to viewing Canvas in a fully supported desktop browser. Canvas pages within a mobile browser are only supported when an action in the app links directly to the browser, such as when a student takes certain types of quizzes. Support is not extended to pages that cannot currently be used in the app, such as Conferences or Collaborations.

Additionally, content items requiring Flash to run will not work unless your browser supports Flash. Safari, Chrome, and most free browsers do not support Flash. However, if you want to use Flash, you may want to try 360, Photon, Skyfire, iSwifter, or Puffin browsers, among other iOS Flash-supported browsers.
