Tiles not responding in custom IOS App

Hi, I am working on integrating PowerBI in an IOS App. So far everything is good except that tiles do not responde when I tap on them. Only tiles with maps respond (I have posted about it on StackOverFlow) and only in certain places (see the red border in the image at the end, I added the border using Photoshop)


This is the HTML Code I'm using (which works perfectly on Android)

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0" />

<script type="text/javascript">
    // listen for message to receive tile click messages.
    if (window.addEventListener) {
        window.addEventListener("message", receiveMessage, false);
    } else {
        window.attachEvent("onmessage", receiveMessage);

    //The embedded tile posts messages for clicks to parent window. Listen and handle as appropriate
    function receiveMessage(event) {
        messageData = JSON.parse(;
        if (messageData.event == "tileClicked"){

    function updateEmbedReport() {
            var w = window.innerWidth - 25;
            var h = window.innerHeight;

            // check if the embed url was selected
            var embedUrl = "";

            var iframe = document.getElementById('iframe1');
            iframe.onload = postActionLoadReport;
            iframe.height = h;
            iframe.width = w;


    function postActionLoadReport() {
        // get the access token.
        accessToken = ;

         var w = window.innerWidth - 25;
         var h = window.innerHeight;

        // construct the post message structure
        var m = { action: "loadTile", accessToken: accessToken, height: h, width: w};
        message = JSON.stringify(m);

        // push the message.
        iframe = document.getElementById('iframe1');
        iframe.contentWindow.postMessage(message, "*");
        iframe.height = h;
        iframe.width = w;

<body onload="updateEmbedReport()">
<iframe id="iframe1" width="250px" frameBorder="0" name="iframe1" height="250px" style="cursor:pointer"/>

Swift Code: 

private var mWebView: WKWebView?
override func awakeFromNib() {
    let mWebViewConfig: WKWebViewConfiguration = WKWebViewConfiguration()
    mWebViewConfig.userContentController.addScriptMessageHandler(self, name: "callbackHandler")
    mWebViewConfig.preferences.javaScriptEnabled = true
    mWebViewConfig.preferences.javaScriptCanOpenWindowsAutomatically = true
    self.mWebView = WKWebView(frame: self.frame, configuration: mWebViewConfig)
    //self.mWebView!.scrollView.scrollEnabled = false

func setData(url: String, tileClick: ITileClick){
    self.mTileClick = tileClick
    let page: String = (InstanceReferences.mPowerBIHandler?.GetPage(InstanceReferences.mAuthenticationToken!, EmbedURL: url, ReportPage: false))!
    self.mWebView?.loadHTMLString(page, baseURL: NSURL(string: url)!)
func userContentController(userContentController: WKUserContentController, didReceiveScriptMessage message: WKScriptMessage) {
if == "callbackHandler" {
