.animate() malfunction on iOS6 after page scroll

I have a problem with some .animate() since I updated my iPad to iOS6 (works fine on iOS5). I use touchstart and touchend events to do a "Drag & Drop" on a container, on touchend, I restore this container to its original position. Works fine until I scroll the page verticaly. After that the .animate() function seems buggy :(

Best regards and thanks for all :)

Can you post your test case on or Please be sure to use the git version of jQuery to make sure the issue still exists. Thanks!

I have a similar problem in my web page, where i m using BXslider and the touchwipe to achieve the horizontal sliding of content (set in li tags).

In touchwipe i want to browser to handle vertical scroll so on "y" move i set return true; stmt and rest touch is handle same way.

This above fix works excellent in ios5/android4 etc but when i do circle/oval touch aggressive scrolling for 5-10 sec in ios6 bxslider animation got freeze(which not happen in ios5).

A bit debugging gives me understanding that bxslider->gotoNextSlide() -> parent.animate stop executing.

Thanks for contributing! We need a bit more information here on what specifically we're supposed to see or get a more reduced test case. There's not that much for us to go on here, as we do not support "aggressive scrolling". Sorry to reset it back to you, but thanks for helping.

I reduced the code from my last project to make a test case which should make the problem clear. and the embedded

On start there are three divs with a opacity of 0.3, on slide left or right the current div should slide out and another slide in. The opacity from the div which slide in should be changed to a opacity of 1 through .animate();

Works fine.

But if you scroll the page vertically, .animate(); doesn't work anymore.

Experiencing the same problem. Is there a solution yet?

So the problem only occurs on OS6? Have you reported it to Apple?

Not yet. I found this page, where the same problem is described:

They point to this solution:

This solves the problem, but the transitions aren't smooth anymore.
