Latest iOS 11 beta removes AMP wrapper from shared URLs

Great find from Federico Viticci:

To me, AMP serves Google and Google only. It does not move the web forward, it just keeps browsing within Google’s ecosystem.

To see this for yourself, start with an AMP URL. Here’s one example. If you open this link in Safari, you’ll see the link is a Google link, not a Verge link.

If you are running iOS 10, when you tap Safari’s share icon and share the link in, say, Messages, the AMP version of the URL will be shared.

If you are running the latest iOS 11 beta, when you share the AMP link in Messages, the unwrapped Verge link will appear. And that’s the way it should be.

Nice find, Federico. Way to go Apple.
