           Summary: window.indexedDB is null and read-only on iOS 8
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: iOS
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: nolan at nolanlawson.com

On the UIWebView in iOS8, the `window.indexedDB` object is null and read-only, which means it's impossible to shim using something like IndexedDBShim [1].

An article just appeared in Smashing Magazine a few weeks ago with a tutorial about how to use IndexedDB with IndexedDBShim [2]. Anybody following the article will end up with non-working code in an iOS 8 app due to this bug.

There's also a relevant IndexedDBShim issue [3].
