Trying to open Apple’s flashy iPhone 11 Pro landing page sometimes* sends you to Edge with a banner message showing “Some websites no longer work with Internet Explorer”. I also got a small popup (in Edge) the first time I tried this, which I unfortunately closed – explaining that the website I visited didn’t support Internet Explorer.
I can’t find a doc or even a mention of how this works, anywhere. Is this something new? How is this implemented?
* I tried again on another Windows machine and nothing happened. It opened a slimmed down version of the page in Internet Explorer as usual.
Opened in new Edge
