    When I use the windows client to build the jQuery Mobile App and deploy it to my iOS 9 phone there is a bug in the back button in the header. is the sample project link

     It works fine in the simulator but on my iOS 9 device data-rel="back" is not working.  This is a pretty serious bug and is a problem I am seeing with all projects we have using AppBuilder.  This is the simplest one that points out the problem though.

    Hello Chris,

    The back button currently doesn't work in all jQuery Mobile apps running in iOS 9. We are looking at the problem and it is most probably related to the following regression in the UIWebView implementation:
    REGRESSION (r182648): UIWebView does not set location.hash synchronously

    The problem should go away if you switch to the WKWebView in your iOS app. This article describes how to configure the default WebView in an AppBuilder project. Note that you need to ensure that once the WKWebView is enabled, the WKWebView Polyfill plugin is enabled under the Plugins pane in the project's properties. Also, you have to ensure that the enabled version of the plugin is 0.6.0 as this version is designed to work with iOS9.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
