Lockdown Mode in iOS 16.4 Breaks Web Forms

Jeff Johnson:

HTML button elements don’t appear in Safari in Lockdown Mode.

Most input elements don’t appear either!

A reader writes:

Since iOS 16.4 was released, HTML input elements have vanished from all sites and web views in apps, and so have attachments in, which no longer appear at all (not even as icons).

As you can imagine, this renders most websites, as well as the Mail app itself, pretty well unusable, especially when the last remaining text labels appear in black on black when in Dark Mode.

I realise that Lockdown Mode is one of these features that Apple supports only partially, but this has gone beyond the bounds of inconvenience and will probably lead many people who do need it to disable it just to use their devices.
