I am planning to submit this as a bug to Esri, but would like to confirm with the larger community that this is indeed what others are experiencing as well. Can anyone else confirm this behavior with the Geolocation Widget on their iOS devices?
- Affects any browser on iOS, tested Chrome and Safari
- Affects iOS 8.x and 9.x
- Tested iPhone 5c/5/6s/6, iPad Air 2
- If the web app implements geolocation without using the widget, the error does not occur. Eg. These samples from Esri do not fail -
- These forum posts on Apple's website seem to indicate a long held problem on iOS when users try to access certain sites (seems to effect some sites and not others.
My guess is that the way Esri's dijit/LocateButton module was written falls into the category of sites/scripts that are affected by this iOS bug, and that Esri may need to update their code in order to resolve or workaround the iOS issue. Curious to hear back!
