    The issue is still present in Unity 2021.3.29f1 LTS: in landscape orientation, Screen.safeArea reports wrong coordinates. This issue is not present in Unity 2020.3.48f1.

    iOS 16.5, Xcode 14.3.1

    The issue still persists when rotating the screen, even on the 2021.3.28 LTS version. Whether starting in Portrait mode or Landscape mode, the SafeArea continues to retain its unchanged values and does not provide updated results for screen rotation.

    This problem recurred in 2022.3.1f1.
    If a built app is launched in portrait and then rotated to landscape, the safe area is not updated.

    Any news on a potential back-port to 2020.3 LTS?

    An estimate on, when or in which version of 2020.3.X this fix will be included, would be great.

    It is blocking our iOS release and we were hoping it would be part of Unity 2020.3.26.

    Is there any plans to integrate this fix into the 2019 LTS?
