Html – Disable Auto Zoom in Input “Text” tag – Safari on iPhone


I made an HTML page that has an <input> tag with type="text". When I click on it using Safari on iPhone, the page becomes larger (auto zoom). Does anybody know how to disable this?

You can prevent Safari from automatically zooming in on text fields during user input without disabling the user’s ability to pinch zoom. Just add maximum-scale=1 but leave out the user-scale attribute suggested in other answers.

It is a worthwhile option if you have a form in a layer that “floats” around if zoomed, which can cause important UI elements to move off screen.
