According to User:Raafat, this issue was fixed after the upgrade to iOS 10.

Which parts look disjoint exactly?
Any URL or screenshot that shows how you expect it to look instead?

(Removing Language-Team as it seems to be unrelated; might be an issue with the fonts provided by your browser.)

Which parts look disjoint exactly?

Everything. Check for example the sidebar or the user tools.

Any URL or screenshot that shows how you expect it to look instead?

This screenshot on Commons shows how it should look like. (Laptop. Google Chrome 53 under Windows 10.)

Which exact fonts are used by the browser on the affected system?
I don't see yet how this is a problem on a Wikimedia site (but rather on the browser's and operating system's side).

Which exact fonts are used by the browser on the affected system?

I don't know. It was User:Raafat who encountered this problem not me. I invited him to comment here.

I can see how the Arabic fonts are disjointed in the screenshot.

Does this still happen? I cannot reproduce it on an iPod touch with iOS 9.3 (it's too old and I cannot update it to a newer version).

(Also, removing RTL tag, because it's not a RTL bug, but a font bug.)
