What is the proposed idea/solution?

Make Interfaces available on the iPad

How does is solve the user problems?

In construction, we use iPads for most of our inspection and statusing. To not have an interface useable on the iPad app is a major barrier to being able to use this in the field. 

How was this validated?

...

Who is the target audience?

Anyone who uses Airtable not sitting down

@mypublicme if you open the link using safari on an ipad you should be directed to the desktop version of airtable website and be able to interact with interfaces as you would on a desktop. At least that's how it works for me.  However, I use Edge and I also just found that in Edge, when you get to the magic link screen, just click the three dots at the top of the screen and click "View desktop site".  I agree, i'd like to see better ipad app functionality, but hopefully this helps you out in the meantime.

That’s great to hear! Too bad I already moved on to a different solution. Maybe for a future project I’ll find this useable again.

Support this one as well! The iPad would be the perfect use case for an interface.

I support launching interfaces on the ipad. It's a pity that I found out about the problem only after buying an ipad, I bought it specifically for employees

iPad software update 17.4 seems to have caused an error when using the desktop site in safari or other browsers for interface pages. You can no longer select options in single or multi select fields, can't select a date in calendar fields.

Has anyone found a suitable workaround until this problem is fixed?

@Martyn no..... I haven't. You can type out the selection and hit enter. But it's a horrifically clunky work around... I hope they fix this asap. It's debilitating to our work flow.
