Safari Scroll Bar Glitch In iOS 4.3?


We’ve received numerous reports this weekend that after updating their iDevices to iOS 4.3, some users have experienced scroll bar glitches in mobile Safari.

In specific, when users are flicking through websites in Safari, the scroll bar is temporarily visible near the center of the display, instead of at the bottom or side where it should be. At this time, the scroll bar issue is not specific to the vertical or horizontal bar.

Personally, I experienced this very rarely with iOS 4.2 on my iPhone 4 and have not seen it on my current iOS 4.2.1 iPhone 4. However with iOS 4.3, the issue seems more widespread.

Whether you’ve updated to iOS 4.3 or not, are you seeing these scroll bar glitches in Safari?

Thanks to SandyCarp for the heads-up!


  • I did once or twice on 4.2.1 but I had to really flick it fast. So far all is good on 3gs, I4, iPad now on 4.3
