Try chromium based browser like brave
Unfortunately everything on the iPad is based on safari, there’s no choice 🙁
Another idea, install this open source emulator for iOS (no jailbreak needed for the slower variant), and install your preferred OS to run Lemmy : https://getutm.app/
I came across this for something unrelated the other day. I might give it a go, thanks.
Did it ever work? If so maybe try this from the apple support…
I’m hoping to avoid a reset, maybe I’ll call that “plan B”. I’ll take a look at the debugging…
I don’t know much about safari, can you install firefox and see if you get the same issue?
There’s also an ios client for lemmy: Remmel. But I’d be interested to know if this is affecting all ipads. I don’t have one so I can’t really test.
It tells me I need ios 14 for that one.

Apple’s dictatorship does not allow use of other browser rendering engines on its iOS mobile platform, so iPhones and iPads basically.
Firefox on iOS uses WebKit engine. If the issue is engine dependent, will be maintained.
A workaround for next times would be testing Lemmy in GNOME Web (formerly Epiphany browser) or which should give the same experience as Safari in WebKit compatibility.
Edited: Other option would be testing on Nyxt if wanted.
Nyxt can be used with WebKitGTK optionally as showed in https://github.com/atlas-engineer/nyxt/blob/master/documents/README.org#gtk-dependencies.
https://caniuse.com/ also helps a lot sometimes as well as MDN documentation about compatibility every time.
I think all browsers just use safari behind the scenes. I’ll take a look though , thanks.
Well, the reply was more to Dessalines than you.
In your case, you can check a desktop browser using WebKit or WebKitGTK (QtWebKit is not good testing by now until it is up-to-date) to check if the issue happens and the console.
Yes, they use WebKit as mandatory for iOS.
Have you tried Lemmur Client?
That doesn’t show up when I search. Maybe it needs ios 13…
That’s only for android
