    I am having an issue getting the 'Select' to work in the RadUpload on the iPhone. Clicking 'Select' does nothing. I found this article from 2007 http://dotnetslackers.com/ASP_NET/re-58898_RadControls_on_iPhone_Part_3.aspx
    which stated

        RadUpload: Unusable
    You probably saw this one coming. As you may know, the iPhone does not allow you to access its filesystem unless you've joined the thriving iPhone hacking community. Based on that restriction, mobile Safari seems to automatically disable the browser's file selection objects- the core of the RadUpload control. So aside from the basic functionality of RadUpload being disabled by the browser, the control does still render properly. Visitors to a page with a RadUpload control on an iPhone will be presented with a good looking, functionless control.

    Is this still valid or is there a fix for this issue?

    Reply from Telerik Documentation:

    Unfortunately this is still a valid issue - neither RadUpload, nor any html upload at all, can be used on IPhone because IOS restricts the access to the operating system. This means that it is impossible to upload files from IPhone as long as the standard <input type=’file’ /> is concerned. As far as I know there is no resolution to this issue.

    Just thought I'd update this.

    With iOS7 and a RadAsyncUpload control from 2014, I've had no problems with the basic functionality. 

    Viewing my site in Safari, it allows me to pick an existing photo or video, or to take a new photo or video for uploading.
