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?

  • @bunyaCloven It shows the first two options only, without the New Portal option

New release of ingress for iOS allows portal submissions as of 26th August 2014


According to Niantic, you cannot.

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

    @SysDragon What Web app? Do you mean ingress.com/intel? No. Commented Jul 20, 2014 at 7:33

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.
