Description Octavian Naicu 2019-09-20 01:56:04 PDT
Trying to record just audio using HTML Media Capture `<input type="file" accept="audio/*" capture>` crashes Safari 13 on iOS 13.

Here's a video:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/uxh87cjgejo9gl1/RPReplay_Final1568968016.MP4?dl=0

It happened during the betas and I hoped it will get fixed for the final build but it didn't. 

In iOS 12 it did not crash, the camera app showed up and allowed you to record a video or take a photo (which is also a bug because you're supposed to record audio with the code above, not video, not photos).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to http://anssiko.github.io/html-media-capture/ using Safari 13 on iOS 13 or iPad OS 13
2. Scroll down to Example 3: `<input type="file" accept="audio/*" capture>`
3. Click [Choose File]
4. Safari will crash

Still happens on Safari on iPad OS 13.1.3

When a fix is committed to the WebKit repo, it can be some time before it's picked up in an OS release, and that timing is not something that Apple employees can talk about.

iOS 13.3, issue is still not fixed.
