Slideshow not displaying images correctly since last iOS update

I have the slideshow implemented on a recently launched website. It replaces a video when the website is viewed on a mobile device such as an iPad or iPhone. It was working fine until the last iOS update. Now when the image slides over it shows black and then the next image "pops" in. You can view it at [link hidden]. The homepage will show the slider if you view it on an iOS device using mobile Safari. It works ok on the Chrome browser for iOS. Any idea s how this might be fixed?

Here;s the activation code I have for the slider...

     $(document).ready(function($) {
            arrowsNav: false,
            loop: true,
            keyboardNavEnabled: false,
            controlsInside: false,
            imageScaleMode: 'fill',
            arrowsNavAutoHide: false,
            autoScaleSlider: false, 
            autoScaleSliderWidth: 960,
autoScaleSliderHeight: 350, controlNavigation: 'none', thumbsFitInViewport: false, navigateByClick: false, startSlideId: 0, autoPlay: true, transitionType:'move', globalCaption: false, deeplinking: { enabled: false, change: false }, /* size of all images */ imgWidth: 1440, imgHeight: 960, sliderDrag: false, sliderTouch: false, autoPlay: { // autoplay options go gere enabled: true, pauseOnHover: false, delay: 3000 } });

And here is the html...

<div id="full-width-slider" class="royalSlider heroSlider rsMinW">
    <div class="rsContent">
        <img class="rsImg" src="/images/styles/home_slider_01.jpg" />
    </div><!-- end rsContent -->
    <div class="rsContent">
        <img class="rsImg" src="/images/styles/home_slider_02.jpg" />
    </div><!-- end rsContent -->
    <div class="rsContent">
        <img class="rsImg" src="/images/styles/home_slider_03.jpg" />
    </div><!-- end rsContent -->
    <div class="rsContent">
        <img class="rsImg" src="/images/styles/home_slider_04.jpg" />
    </div><!-- end rsContent -->

    I just changed it to "fade" transition type for now since the site is live. This looks to be working ok. The client would still like the "move" transition type though. Please let me know if you want me to change back to take a look.

    Can you please create some test page with slider that doesn't work correctly and link to it?

    Also, can you repeat the problem on the main demo site, e.g. on this page ?

    Thank you.

    Dmitry, the problem is happening the same way on the demo page you linked to. When I click on a thumbnail on my iPad the image slides over but you see black beside it as it slides, then when it's done sliding the new image pops into place. I see this on my Ipad with the newest version of iOS and on the device simulator in XCode. Thanks for the quick response!

    Indeed, no idea how I missed that during initial ios9 safari test. It seems this style fixes the issue on my side:

    .rsWebkit3d .rsSlide {
        -webkit-transform: none;

    Try it please.

    Funny that the opposite style fixed almost the same bug in Safari on iOS6.

    Has this fix been added to the most recent version?

    Hey Dmitry

    I have seen you released a new version of royalslider on envato. Thanks for your awesome plugin :)

    I updated my slider on my website now and i got serious display problems on IOS iphone X 11.2.6.

    In Chrome App: Images not displaying correctly / Very Buggy to slide "drag is enabled", Slider is not animating correctly to the next slide.
    Safari: Arrows are not displayed, but enabled.

    please look at the attached video.
