It is possible that you have not enabled NativeLink™. That will cause deferred deep linking to not work on iOS 15+ devices on Private Relay
To implement iOS NativeLink™, follow the instructions in our developer documentation.
- Click a one-off Branch Link where "$ios_nativelink"=true is set in the link parameters.
- Using a device on iOS 15+, uninstall the app from your device.
- Click the Branch Link from Apple Notes and have it route through Safari.
- Click the call-to-action and ensure that the link is copied to the iOS clipboard.
- Install or build the new app version directly from XCode.
- Upon link redirect to the App Store, the user sees the new NativeLink experience.
- When the app opens, the user should see a notification that the app has pasted from the clipboard
- The API call to api2.branch.io/v1/open or v1/install should include a new parameter called "local_url".
