How to maintain login status in a PWA initially loaded via Safari 14/iOS 14?

Our requirement is to have our users login to an app via a URL and, having added the app to their homescreen as a PWA, maintain that logged-in status, so that a second login to the installed PWA is not required. This is certainly possible under Android/Chrome where the logged-in status can be initially stored […]

Workaround for missing "Web Push" on Safari for my PWA

I am developing a PWA that requires Push-Notifications. Sadly IOS/Safari does not support https://w3c.github.io/push-api/#pushmanager-interface for now, so I think i might have to wrap a native APP around in some way. In Android (before their “Trusted Web Activities” was a thing) you could use a WebView to basically display a headless Chrome-View in your App. […]

iOS PWA: how to force opening in a new window

iOS Standalone PWA input capture

I think we found a regression in iOS 13.2/13.3 in regard to PWAs running in standalone mode. Since on iOS PWA cannot access getUserMedia() we rely on the capture attribute on the HTML5 input tag to let the user take a picture and send it to a server. Our code looks like this: <div class=”camera-upload”> […]
