So i have installed the Onion Browser iOS app (Mike Tigas) on iOS 12 on an iPhone 8 Plus. I have used this app on the previous version of iOS on the same phone without issue. When I try to access any onion url I constantly get a dialog with this error popping up. I don’t have any custom proxy or vpn set up on the iPhone. It doesn’t make a difference if I use WiFi or Mobile Data. I am aware that I am not going to get complete privacy on this device but the application is handy. I google the error and the apple docs seem to suggest it is related to SOCKS 5. Has anyone else seen this before or does anyone have a suggested fix.
