Fullscreen Rotate Device Issue (iOS only)

Scenario: Click image fullscreen. In fullscreen mode, rotate device.

Result: Image do not scale and/ or resize to fit new device width.

This issue was repeatable on several iOS devices, but not on any Android devices or PC browsers.

Is there any way to trigger an event to rescale image when rotating in fullscreen?
Or any other fix for that matter?

    Try adding the code that updates size after orientation change with delay

        var t;
        $(window).on('orientationchange', function() {
          t = setTimeout(function() {
          }, 500);
