iOS 7 – can't open a PDF from we page. Help!
I can’t download anything from the mag archive or any other PDF files in iOS 7 from a web page. In iOS 6 you could download and view and then also open in another app, but now the download goes to about a third of the way along the bar and then nothing. It seems that this is a regular problem, but I can’t find any apple forum threads that actually have a definitive answer!
Anyone found what the problem is?Posted 4 years ago
Works fine from a computer. It’s for several web pages. Try this one for size –
And then click on one of the links there – Lent Term, etc. That launches a PDF which I can never see in Safari.Posted 4 years agoDracSubscriber
If you have a few apps that will open up PDF files it can cause conflicts as more than one may try and open the PDF file, it should only let the one in use open it. However, buggy apps may try and force to open the app causing a conflict. You need to find out which one is doing that and best way is to delete them one at a time.Posted 4 years ago
No problem for me on iOS7 on iPhone 4S or iOS5 on iPad 1 – very strange it’s happening on both your devices. Perhaps @Drac is onto something although I would have thought Safari would “rule” if it where the active app. You could try simple reset (power off) and clearing cache and history but you’d lose your web page logins.
EDIT Drac’s post refers to the open in option in mail so is not the same issue I thinkPosted 4 years ago
Hum .. Genius bar appointment at your local Apple store, I find it really odd it’s affecting both devices. Are the devices both full ?
You might try and search Apple support forums and MacRumors forums
Last resort (clutching at straws) is a restore from backup via iTunes. Sorry not to be more help.Posted 4 years ago
