Safari mobile browser not loading default page / initialURL correctly #6440
I am trying to simulate deep linking in an Appium app. To do this, I first open up an iOSDriver that navigates to the desired URL. Then I quit this AppiumDriver without closing the simulator, and open another iOSDriver with the app.
However, the Driver won't load because the initial welcome URL doesn't apply. The simulator opens up Safari and puts the welcome text into the search bar, but it doesn't apply it / hit Enter. The simulator just spins and the Driver can't be created unless I manually hit Enter.

Appium log once it eventually times out:
I think the important bit is this, where it appears to try to hit 'Go' in Safari but can't.
I just struggled with this issue for 2 days until I ended up on this page. When I toggle the software keyword, everything worked well.
I am using Appium 1.5.3 on Mac OS X EL Capitan. So it seems that issue exists in Appium 1.5.3 as well.
