Dear Experts,

I have to create web application which support rendering 3D image on web browsers.
Currently, I use WebGL for implementing it.

How can I solve this problem?
Is there any way to enable WebGL on iOS web browsers?
Or how can we work around with this?
Please help!

Regards.

There is a way since iOS5 on a "jailbroken" iOS device to enable WebGL as Apple had included WebGL support in their iAds service but not in Safari for iOS.

Unfortunately I see no sign that there has been any change in WebGL support since iOS 5 and in fact there is little evidence that Apple are going to support it as they repeatedly failed to add it with 2 major iOS upgrades since 2011.
