Making a phone call from within an Powerapp App

Hi there

I am testing a button that has this code onSelect :

 

Launch("tel:01162102020")

 

That should call the user , but this doesnt work on an Iphone7. It just launchs Safari and doesnt do anything.

Any help would be brilliant.

Hi @Jason_Hough,

 

I have reproduced this issue on my iPhone6 too. The same app works for Android. I will try to involve pg to look into this issue. Thanks for your report.
