jQuery deactivates site in iOS6 #30

Hi there,

I'm using TouchSwipe on this development site- click here to see which was working great under iOS 5 and mobile safari.

use iOS 6 safari and chrome to view issue

After my weekend update to iOS 6, it seems jQuery deactivates the site after vertical scrolling a bit (normal browser scrolling, not jQuery). After browser scrolling Touch swipe no longer functions properly nor do page anchors (main menu) at the top.

I'm using version 1.2.5 - This is confirmed to work on iOS 5 devices, however iOS (iPhone & iPads) seem to deactivate the site after some vertical scrolling.


Ill have a look when im back in the office, did you have any idea where the issues might be?


It turns out this problem is caused by a bug in iOS6 involving touch events triggering both a setTimeout and scrolling. You can fix the problem by adding this script along with the touchSwipe script: when you call your javascript.

Just under your jquery. So if your jquery is in the head then place it there. But it is better to place all your scripts before the closing body tag

Thanks for this solution. This problem was giving me a headache for almost 2 days.
