Support for keyboard in webview context on password field in iOS

On iOS real devices we cannot enter/type input values on password field on webview application. This prevents customers from testing their web application and hybrid application containing webview context.

This feature would allow customers test their web and hybrid apps as they have go through a login page which has password field in it.

This happens on iOS devices with 13.2 and greater.

Note: This feature is supported in Native view on the platform but not on webview.

    Hi Ivan,
    thank you for submitting this request. Unfortunately, this is related to an iOS security feature which only shows input in password fields if they are made physically by touch. We found a workaround to still show input being made in apps (via re-signing), but for webview it currently seems impossible.
    Best,
    Karla
