I will try to explain why the animations in iOS (native) and Xamarin.iOS differ. It turns out that the native iOS component has dedicated API for inserting, moving, deleting and reloading items with animation. However, when we implemented the Xamarin.iOS component we used different approach for doing these operations. Unfortunately, this alternative approach does not trigger the native animations.
