Things that shouldn’t disappear from the web: How to prevent iOS Safari from zooming in on elements on the page…
Jesse Skinner posted back in 2007 about how to prevent the iPhone browser from zooming in on page controls. His solution was to add this code to the <head></head>.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=320; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;"/>
That works. Here’s another possibility that may be more flexible:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0" />
This is what the Internet is for… avoiding the hours that it used to take to solve mundane problems. Thanks, Jesse!
