Hi Edwin,

I’m assuming this is a Traditional web application that you are trying to access from an iOS device’s browser?

On the PDFObject page, it is specifically mentioned PDF embedding is not supported by Safari iOS.

I haven’t checked how SimpleViewer is implemented, it mentions it can handle browsers that do not support PDFObject, but that may require you to do things differently (maybe use a different pattern/action)?

You may want to consider simplifying and using something like PDF Viewer, that also uses the same PDF.js library, but doesn’t try to embed PDFs directly?
