Hi everybody,

Thanks to all of the extremely useful feedback we've received during
the TestFlight of WireGuard for iOS, Roopesh, Eric, and I have now
released a beta into the App Store itself:

Depending on your region and Apple's caching semantics, this link
might take some unknown amount of time to begin working.

Apple requested a video of the app running on a physical device during
their review of the app, showing that it works. For the curiosity of
non-iPhone folks, you can see it here:
https://data.zx2c4.com/wireguard-ios-app-store-review.mp4 . It's more
or less the same interface as on Android and is designed to be as
simple and "system-like" as possible, while still exposing all of the
features and flexibility of WireGuard.

Please do keep the feedback coming. At the moment, I'm especially
interested in reports of people transitioning between mobile and WiFi
when using T-Mobile's network within the US. But generally, all bug
reports, complete with the exported log, are very welcome, as we
continue to refine these beta releases.

As before, if you're interested in doing development on this app,
please get in touch with team at wireguard.com. Likewise, we're always
looking for a helping hand with a variety of tasks, including but not
limited to:
- iOS
- macOS
- Android
- Windows
- Web development (wireguard.com could use some love)
- Various kernels
- So forth
