Limit number of domains using universal links
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Per a request from Apple, sites which have a large number of subdomains (like us) have a bug which causes the app to hang or crash when links are opened from Safari, Mail, etc. Apple has provided a way to wildcard these domains, but needs us to adopt them ASAP due to user complaints about failing links.

Note this is not specific to Wikimedia.

If we cannot wildcard all domains these should be prioritized (along with their m. variants)

To test:

In 9.3:

  1. Open Safari.

In 9.2:

  1. Open Safari.
  2. Open any article in en.wikipedia.org
  3. Verify that it opens the app

Works in iOS 9.2 with Wikipedia 5.0.2 (802.1) app, wasn't able to test in 9.3 due to updating issues with my iPhone.

Doesn't seem to be working in production app 5.0.2. We are working with apple to diagnose. See bug ticket here: T131250
