Delay opening links on iPhone

I’ve noticed over the last week or so that opening a link from an app such as Ivory or Reeder incurs a delay of up to 10 seconds before the site opens. The apps are at to use their default browser and no open directly in safari. Anyone else seeing this?

This may sound too basic and non-technical. Have you tried turning off the iPhone and turning it back on? I have noticed in my experiences with iPhone and IPads, this often fixes quirky events.

That’s never too basic :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: that was my first thought and didn’t fix unfortunately.

Perhaps clearly the cache would help?

Are you running any OS Betas?

If so, Apple has removed the ability to run PWAs. Could it be linked to this?

Oh, wow, that’s a hell of a fork. I didn’t even think that they would do this geographically.

The EU is very powerful!

I thought Apple had reversed this decision and we could continue to use Web Apps on the iOS Homescreen.

They did in the time since I posted my message three weeks ago. A lot is moving with the DMA!
