iOS Question

Use of window.location doesn't work on iPad

I'm using some

JavaScript
that will redirect the user to another
URL
after a fixed period of time. This is working well on all browsers but on an iPad 3 I have to test on it isn't working. The timeout fires and I call

window.location = "www.someurl.com";


and I've also tried

window.location.href = "www.someurl.com";


I can see the
URL
in the browser changing to
www.someurl.ocom
but the browser doesn't actually go there - it stays on the same page.

Is there something iPad specific I have to do to make this work?

Thanks

Answer

try location.href = "...", should work on both
