Screenshot of page shown when visiting app store link.

When a user taps a link to go the app store to see an app (such as https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/snapchat/id447188370), WKWebView does not receive the redirect to an itms scheme URL, and the user navigates to an incorrect website which describes App Store features, instead of redirecting to the app store app. This happens most of the time.


Steps to Reproduce:
Go to an iTunes app store link from WKWebView.


Expected Results:
Redirect to iOS app store app to see relevant app listing.

Actual Results:
The user navigates to an incorrect website which describes iTunes app store features. (Screenshot attached)

Version:
iOS 9.x
