Users complaining of being sent to the 'offline' page

I've recently migrated my forum to using Invision Community (self hosted)

One issue I've noticed post-migration from checking the nginx web server logs is that there are suspiciously large numbers of different people hitting the /offline page. 
Here is an example log line from nginx (I've removed the IPs and domain)

[11/Apr/2023:08:09:22 +0000] "GET /offline/ HTTP/1.0" 200 4568 "https://www.{website domain}/index.php?app=core&module=system&controller=serviceworker&v={id}&type=front&loggedIn=true" "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 16_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) CriOS/112.0.5615.46 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1"


This is taking them to an Invision page saying "You appear to be Offline". I would somehow doubt this considering they are able to hit this page.

I've also had a few forum members contact me about this. Upon doing investigations of nginx logs, I can confirm they have been hitting this offline page.


Can anyone suggest why this would be happening? What would cause people to end up at this /offline page?
