Launch url scheme not working

Hi!
I am trying to have a button with the following OnSelect:

Launch("calc://")

It is not working on my IOS device, but if I type calc:// in Safari, the caluclator app opens.

 

Is it not possible to use such links from Power APps?

URI scheme is likely not accessible to the App for openURI which is what Apple devices use and I see that these are often changed and depend on version of iOS - I know you can get to the settings using Launch but I'm not sure what other functions are surfaced for other 3rd-party apps to use (likely to reduce the chance of any vulnerabilities)

Have you tried Launch("Calculator://")
