            Bug ID: 206887
           Summary: Keyboard input doesn't work in WKWebView
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 13
          Hardware: iPhone / iPad
                OS: iOS 13
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Misc.
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Using a keyboard attachment to an iPad.

"keydown" events never fire in WKWebView if you preventDefault() on "touchstart" events.

Minimal repro: https://www.scirra.com/labs/bugs/keypresses.html

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set up device with keyboard
2. View URL in Safari. Press a key. Observe keyboard input.
3. View URL in WKWebView. Press a key.

Expected: also receive keyboard input
Observed: no keyboard input received

If we remove the call to preventDefault() in "touchstart", it starts working again in WKWebView. However we need to call preventDefault() for other reasons. It shouldn't block keyboard input. It works correctly in Safari, only WKWebView is blocking keyboard input.
