What would cause a player not to go fullscreen on ios?

I have an overlay that holds the player. When a users clicks a button in the page the overlay is visible and the player plays the content. However the video is not going to native fullscreen on Safari ios. Should it? Can I force it to? I thought this was the default behavior? What could cause it not to go native fullscreen?

I have figured out that if I remove "playsinline" from the video properties it works correctly. Is there a way to disabled that property from being added?

There’s no api to remove it, but you can manually remove as you have.
