The download functionality of the PDFViewer component doesn't work on Apple mobile devices both on Chrome and Safari browsers.

*Note: The above behavior is not represented on Android devices.

Reproduction of the problem

  1. Open this demo iPad or iPhone
  2. Tap on the "Download" icon of the PDFViewer.

Current behavior

Nothing happens when the Download icon is tapped. After this tapping part of the other component functionalities like "open" and "search" stop working.

When the download icon is tapped a "save file" popup should appear and the user can save the currently viewed PDF file.
