Automatic zoom to selected control in iPhone

Hello

Please be so kind as to read my full post before responding.
Thank your for your consideration.

Recently I have noticed a "feature" of PowerApps on iPhone.
It automatically zooms in to the selected control in one of my PowerApps after selected said control.
It doesn't zoom out again after finishing input.
This behaviour is really annoying for me (and my end users).
Right now, after every input, I have to manually zoom out again to find the next control I want to change or click.

I have only noticed this annoying behaviour on our (single) iPhone device: iPhone 7, iOS 12.4, PowerApps 3.19071.14, Last test session: 544912bb-1a96-4ca7-b840-e1ba2383672c

  1. Is it possible to turn off this "automatic zoom" somewhere?
  2. Is it possible to completely turn off zooming inside PowerApps or a particular PowerApp?


Maybe related, I don't know:
This particular PowerApp is built with a responsive layout, i.e., scale to fit disabled, lock aspect disabled, lock orientation disabled, Width of all screens set to App.Width, Height of all screens set to App.Height, ...

Re: Automatic zoom to selected control in iPhone

Hello

A colleague mentioned that since this an iPhone only issue, it might be related to the auto-zoom functionality that Safari supposedly offers.

 

  1. Is it true that PowerApps on iPhone uses Safari for rendering?
  2. If yes, is there any way to incorporate this Safari workaround in PowerApps?

I'm seeing the same issue with the iPhone apps I've created!  Not only is it annoying, but I've found when it does this on the editform screens, it starts causing artifacts at the bottom of the screen where the keyboard pops up.  Then you've got to kill the app and restart it to view the bottom 100 pixels or so...  It's completely wrecked my app...

I'm having this same issue as well with our IPhone users.
