iOS version of the game has recently released. I faced the idea to submit a new portal in an area where theres is a low amount of them, and all the tutorial that I found consist in "sharing" the image with NIA Service Ops or press and hold on the map inside the app to make appear a menu that contains New Portal option.

Create Portal option from Android App

But this must be only for Android version of the app. I'm level 1 and maybe this could affect, however I didn't read anything specifying that there is a minimum level.

So the question is... can a new portal be submitted from iOS?

What happens when you try to open that menu? – bunyaCloven Jul 17 '14 at 6:49
@bunyaCloven It shows the first two options only, without the New Portal option – SysDragon Jul 17 '14 at 6:50

According to Niantic, you cannot.

You can optionally just take pictures and wait for its implementation.

Can portals be submitted through the web app? – SysDragon Jul 18 '14 at 10:22
@SysDragon What Web app? Do you mean No. – Matthias Urlichs Jul 20 '14 at 7:33
@MatthiasUrlichs Looks like they plan to activate it: – SysDragon Aug 6 '14 at 8:38

It looks that they are going to allow portal submissions through the web:

According to NiaOps (we met with them last friday for danish cross-faction meet up) the submission of portals might be opened up again via web, because the iOS 7 framework doesn't give the same access as android, for geo info. [Jul 23, 2014]

Fingers crossed. I've got at least 10 portals to submit. – PaulvdDool Aug 7 '14 at 14:25
