PWA on iOS not prompting for install, but other platforms does - any idea why?
Hello all! I have a PWA that seems to work as expected on all platforms, including prompting the user to install it, and running in browser-less mode on all platforms but iOS.
I think that all I should have to do is visit my site a couple of times in order to get the prompt, right? Does iOS have tricks I’m missing? I developed in 1.14.x and while I do need to update to the latest, I don’t think that is my issue.
Any ideas? My phone does have the latest iOS and everything else in my app works on it, so far as I can tell. Since I just published, I’ll have friends/family test tomorrow to see if it is my phone/iOS combo since my phone is old-ish (iPhone 7). TBH, I haven’t tested on Android either, now that I think about it, so maybe it’s a mobile issue? PC and Mac for sure are working.
For those interested, the URL is mobile.gospeldoctrine.com
Thanks in advance.

If you mean it is not prompting in
safarion IOS, you are correct it does not. If you use chrome on IOS it probably will show a install prompt btw.
See here how to install a PWA on safari:
