Set Input Focus not working

Anyone know why Set Focus to Input might not be working on mobile?

It works fine on a desktop browser but in a mobile browser (iOS) it doesn’t work. Im building a mobile messaging system, so for good UX I want the keyboard to show up as soon as the messaging group is made visible. No dice.

Hi there,… I don’t have a solution here, but you are not alone on this one…

Oh, and a Google search turned up lots of stuff on the topic, including folks trying to “fake” the focus because it seems like it’s something Apple really doesn’t want you to do.


And here I am thinking i’m proficient at searching the internet for information. Ha, clearly not. I missed all of these. Thanks for the heads up @mikeloc as long as it’s not just me!
