How to fix Tailwind CSS `ring` not working in iOS Safari

February 15, 2023

I was trying to use the Tailwind CSS ring classes on an <input />, but they didn’t seem to work in iOS Safari.

Finally, I figured out that you have to add the appearance-none class to the input to make the ring work!

This is because iOS adds a shadow to the input by default, and the Tailwind ring classes use a shadow under the hood. Adding appearance-none removes iOS’ default styling for the input.

<input class="appearance-none ring ring-cyan-400" />
