Safari in iOS 16 autofocusing form elements


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Ellessar

I noticed that Safari in new iOS 16.0 autofocuses an input element if:

  1. type=number or text
  2. pattern=d*
  3. margin-top on containing element is 48px (I did not test the precise cut-off value here)

Test page:

autocomplete=off and autofocus=false doesn’t change anything. Before iOS 16 there were no such issues. The problem is confirmed on 2 seperate iPhones with iOS 16.

This leads to automatic homepage scrolling, enlarging and opening the keypad, which is unacceptable.
How should I solve the issue without obvious “remove input/pattern”.
