Meta Tags

MetaExtension format-detection

The format-detection metatag defines wether phone numbers are detected automatically in iOS Safari or not.

Since this is blocking an acessibility-feature, it should only be used when there is no other workaround.

Read more about Apple's iOS meta-tags at Apple's official documentation (opens in a new tab).


<meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">

content can also be telephone=yes, but the meta-tag is obsolete then, since the browser does this automatically.
