While opening the link to the iOS Private App on your Safari browser on your iPad, you notice that there's no app install link. This article explains why this occurs and how you can solve it by configuring the site to open as a desktop version.
You opened the link to your iOS Private App on your Safari browser on an iPad and you noticed that it contains no link to download and install the app. Instead, you get this message:
Please visit this link in an iOS device to download this application <app name>
This occurs because the device is not detected/recognized as an iOS device when the Private App link is clicked.
Note: When an app is published using the Enterprise Distribution option, the link to the Private App download location is sent to the entered email address. This link can then be distributed to your clients.
