WKWebView cancelling requests after iOS 11.3

I develop a native-web app (Hybrid) that uses the new iOS 11 functionalities from WKWebView during most of app workflows and functionalities.

After updating to iOS 11.3 I’ve noticed the app started to freeze and cancel requests at several places.


The most worrisome issue I was able to identify with iOS 11.3 is that ALL XMLHttpRequest operations performed at the WKWebView side, when there’s a modally presented UIView in the app, are CANCELLED.

I had to change the app is several places to work around this new limitation introduced in iOS 11.3. (This is not the only limitation introduced during iOS 11.3)

This looks like an attack againt hybrid apps with no previous warning.


Let me know what do you all think.
