View Full Version : iOS6 Caching Post requests also

20 Sep 2012, 9:39 PM
I've spent last 3-4 hours pulling my hair as some of our sites/ sencha touch apps have stopped working properly. On further investigation and search on the internet, found out that iOS 6 - Safari seems to be caching POST requests also. Here is a small fix I did for connection request to add the caching parameter on POST requests also in Sencha Touch:

Ext.define('Df.data.Connection', {
override: 'Ext.data.Connection',

setOptions: function (options, scope) {
var result = this.callOverridden(arguments);
result.url = Ext.urlAppend(result.url, (options.disableCachingParam || this.getDisableCachingParam()) + '=' + (new Date().getTime()));
return result;

This seems to have started with the GA release. Up to beta4, everything was working fine.

Same issue, override suggested works for me too.

There is lots on iOS 6 and caching post requests with a quick Google! Hopefully they will bring out an iOS patch some time soon.
