Are Progressive Web Applications Compatible With iPhones?

While working with Progressive Web Applications, we have observed that some of their key features work only partially on iPhones.

For iOS 11 + and Safari browser

The ‘add to home screen’ feature does not prompt automatically. Even when the feature is enabled manually, the splash screen does not show.

Sometimes the pages are not cached.

Push notifications are not working at all.

For iOS 11 + Chrome browser, the key features are not supported at all. In fact, the ‘add to home screen’ feature cannot be enabled manually.

Interestingly, all the above mentioned features are working fine on Android based phones.

We would like to know your opinion if the above findings are widely observed?
