IOS 9 VR Fullscreen issue

Hi Guys,



I have problem I think. When I view our panoramas in VR the bottom and top bar
fade away automatically in safari on my IPhone 5C but since the update to IOS 9
i am experiencing that when you open a panorama in VR mode the top and bottom
bar don’t fade away. Normally I would than just tilt my IPhone to vertical and
then back to horizontal so that the bars disappear but this is not working two (see image below.




Can some share some light on this question. It’s very annoying to view a VR
panorama in a google cardboard with the top and bottom bar form safari still visible.


Thanks



Dirk

Hi,

iOS itself doesn't support the HTML5 fullscreen API, so the only way to get a fullscreen mode is the Safari build-in landscape fullscreen mode.

I've tested and the iPhone 5 with iOS 9 now and yes, you're right - Apple has unfortunately again broke a feature... (on the iPhone 6 it is still working with iOS 9), I will look at it, maybe it's possible to find some tricky workarounds...

Btw - it will probably not help, but please reporting such problems also directly to Apple.

Best regards,
Klaus

Additionally krpano height is sometimes wrong and will overflow the viewport.

Hi,

after a lot of trying I've found a workaround for this new iOS 9 bug - the next krpano releases (1.18.6 and 1.19-pr4) will have the workaround included.

Best regards,
Klaus

Klaus,

I'm currently working on a cardboard project, could you kindly talk a bit about how the workaround works? It will be a BIG help!

Best regards,

That sounds great when do you expect the 1.19 pr4?

Same problem here (5s/9.1), almost drove me nuts yesterday when tried to debug my code :D

Because it IS working properly (for me) when I save a link of the tour to my homescreen and open the tour from there.
That may not always be a proper solution but it might help the one or the other in the meantime.

iOS fullscreen

after a lot of trying I've found a workaround for this new iOS 9 bug - the next krpano releases (1.18.6 and 1.19-pr4) will have the workaround included.
Any idea when 1.19-pr4 will be released ?

Only the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 6 in 'zoomed-mode' are affected by this.

Hi Klaus,

Thanks for finding out! Could you tell something about the release date of pr4? Or is there any way we can do the work around ourselves? We've got a client who's hugely affected by this bug (which is Apple's... I know)

body { height: 101%; overflow: hidden; }

Brilliant!

Just set the primary div to 99% and nothing gets cut off.

If only there were a way to automatically minimize the address bar and hide the navigation menu in portrait mode we would be set.

I may have an even better solution:

Source code

1
2
3
4
html {
  height: 100%;
  padding-bottom:1px;
}

The body 101% method caused a problem for me when embedded in an iframe. The above method seems to work fine in all cases.

I am using krpano 1.19-pr5 and without VR mode, I can make it fullscreen. When I enter VR mode I can not make it full screen.

In IOS 9, When we enter VR mode, basically kr-object is getting full screen by css right? like (position : fixed or absolute, top-left : 0, width-height:100%) If the answer is yes, I tried to hide all kr-pano div elements including target-div by css(display:none) but I couldn't make it. If the Krpano in Vr mode, safari can not be fullscreen.


Is there any reason do you know?

Entering VR mode fires the full screen event. You don't need to do it separately. You can see that in action when viewing in fake VR mode on desktop. Why that wouldn't happen in your case I don't know. But in iOS only Safari allows full screen display.

Without VR mode, fullscreen is working well but when enter on it, makes me crazy.
IDK what to do but in WR mode, my html,body css values make that problem.
