avesus / September 2017 iOS WebKit input focus position:
Created Sep 4, 2017
September 2017 iOS WebKit input focus position: fixed
View September 2017 iOS WebKit input focus position:

Mobile Safari does not support position: fixed when an input focused and virtual keyboard displayed.

To force it work the same way as Mobile Chrome, you have to use position: absolute, height: 100% for the whole page or a container for your pseudo-fixed elements, intercept scroll, touchend, focus, and blur events.

The trick is to put the tapped input control to the bottom of screen before it activates focus. In that case iOS Safari always scrolls viewport predictably and window.innerHeight becomes exactly visible height.

Open in Mobile Safari to see how it works.

Please avoid forms where you have several focusable elements because more tricks to fix position will be necessary, those were added just for demonstration purposes.
