    It seems that tap and hold context menus are not working for our iPad users on the latest iOS version(13.1.2).  We are able to reproduce the issue with our inhouse iPad even when using  Telerik's Demo.

    Has this been reported yet?  Any workarounds?

    Also, what might be related is that the


    Appears to return false when on an iPad now.  If that is being used for determining some logic on how to handle touch events then that might be the issue.  

    It works fine on iPhones.

    Hello Anthony,

    We have created a KB article summarizing our discussion in the private support thread: 

    The workaround suggested in the KB is placing the following script on the page:

    // iPad with enabled "Request Desktop Site" 
    if ($telerik.isTouchDevice == false && navigator.maxTouchPoints > 0 && Telerik.Web.Platform.mac) {
        $telerik.isTouchDevice = true;
        Telerik.Web.Platform.ipad = true;
        Telerik.Web.Platform.mac = false;
