I saved a web application to my home screen, but the icon on the home screen opens a different URL. Somehow the URL of the bookmark that was saved to the home screen does not match the URL that was in the address bar.
Steps to reproduce
- On an any iOS device... (I used an iPhone XR)
- Browse to https://bc.thrive.health/covid19app/home
- Press the Share button
- Choose "Add to Home Screen"
- Notice that the URL in the pop-up prompt
https://bc.thrive.healthis different from the URL in the address bar.
What causes this? How does iOS determine what URL will be used when adding to the home screen, and in what circumstances can it be different from the URL in the address bar?
