How to authenticate dev.to PWA on iPhone?

Hi All,
Recently I have installed PWA of dev.to on Safari on my iPhone 7. The app shortcut has been added to home screen.

But when I open PWA and tries to Sign In using Twitter, it redirects me to Safari again and shows Twitter app authorization page.

After successfully authentication it was suppose to open the caller application i.e. PWA of dev.to. But it redirects to dev.to website on same tab of Safari where Twitter authentication page was shown.

Am I missing something OR it is default behavior of Safari? If it's default behavior then we can say that implementation of PWA is in progress.

Does anyone facing same behavior?

Yeah, it doesn't work, and there are other types of behavior which are frustratingly weird on iPhone. We've basically been sitting around waiting for some of those issues to be worked out.

It's possible we could fix this particular problem with iOS PWAs but it's just the tip of the iceberg as far as I see.

So long story short, it's currently not working as intended and we should make that clear. Sorry about the issue.

Current behavior = When I download your PWA and log in with a social account, I get bounced back to the brower after logging in.
Expected behavior = after social login, auto redirrect back to PWA.
Android.

yeah, I'm seeing the same behavior here, but I just keep the dev.to PWA there as a shortcut to see some posts when I'm not in a computer for now. This website is great and has great content. =)
