[BUG] Impossible to install the PWA App if we do not set the iOS Startup Image

Go to solution Solved by Stuart Silvester,

I have Android 13. I noticed that if we don't set the iOS Startup Image (start screen for Apple), we can't install the PWA application. Recently there have been problems with the configuration of the iOS screen, so I suggest moving the meta tag

	<meta name="mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">
	<meta name="apple-touch-fullscreen" content="yes">
	<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">


{{if \count( $apple )}}

After this procedure, the browser detected the application.

Chrome on Android now supports a meta-tag mobile-web-app-capable.

Since Chrome M31, you can set up your web app to have an application shortcut icon added to a device's homescreen, and have the app launch in full-screen "app mode" using Chrome for Android’s "Add to homescreen" menu item.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! I can confirm this should be further reviewed and I have logged an internal bug report for our development team to investigate and address as necessary, in a future maintenance release.

I did some tests and actually tags have nothing to do with it. You're right.

Anyway, only Chrome allows you to install a PWA application, Firefox, Opera or Edge only install a "shortcut" on the screen. I didn't pay attention to it before.
