How to get rid of the iPad Skin on a prototype on the iPad?!

Hi there

The whole purpose of Invision for me is to showcase prototypes on the devices itself. How do I get rid of the iPad interface that wraps around the interface when I open an Invision link in Sfari?? Requesting the mobile site doesn't work as well. If I remember correctly this used to work a few months ago - at least with the iPhone. I was able to send myself a prototype link, open it up in Safari, add the page to my homescreen, open the page and have a nice prototype experience. Is it still possible to make a prototype feel like a real product?

Hi Rafael,

Sorry for the issue you’re having with viewing prototypes on mobile browsers!

Can you share a couple more details, when you have a moment?

  • What model device and version of mobile OS are you on?
  • What mobile browser and version number are you using?
  • Can you share a screenshot or screencast of this behavior occurring?
  • If you're comfortable posting it, can you send over the share link that you're using?

I know this is a frustrating problem to come across, but this information will be valuable in helping us troubleshoot this for you.

I have the same problem and is the main reason i use Invision is because I can show exactly what the UI/UX will look like on an Ipad AND the full screen was a very powerful presentation tool. The UI is NOT going to look like an Ipad within an Ipad !! This change is ludicrous. I would say it's hurt your product DRAMATICALLY. That's the problem when you let engineers design a marketing product.

The Ipad I'm using is - IPadPro (12.9 inch) 2nd Generation

The software version is 14.2

Attached is :-

1. What a Prototype now looks like. Thanks to your engineers not only fixing something that wasn't broken but actually breaking something that was.

2. What a Prototype used to look like. (Yes you can zoom out but then the photos glitch when you change screens and mess up the UI experience )
