  1. @rohithZE In my case, there was a modal that would appear to allow give the options of either opening the camera or opening the gallery. The issue on iOS was that upon making the selection, it would open while the modal was still closing, leading to the issue. So what I did was use a setTimeout to give the modal time to close before opening the selection. In my case, my modal was taking 300ms to close so I put a setTimeout of 350ms, and then open either the gallery or camera.
