"Create Backup" broken on iPhone/iOS #54

I'm trying to export my settings/save games with the build-in function "Create Backup", but I'm running into issues.
It shows an field with the json data to copy, but there are multiple problems:

  • It's very hard to copy everything since iOS does not mark everything if you tap inside the input box (it only selects from the end to the first forward-slash) -- maybe some JS would help to select everything
  • The data is incomplete. It seems like there is a 1000 character limit for the data in an input box, so it's impossible to export the data.
    (at least my data is incomplete (json) and it would not let me import the data on a desktop browser; also my data is exactly 1000 characters, which is unlikely to be an coincident.)
    Maybe there is another way to display/download the data like with a <textarea> or <a href"…" download>

How to Reproduce

Settings -> Storage -> Create Backup

Device Information

iPhone Xs
iOS 13.2.3
Safari (but used as an PWA)
