Use of window.location doesn’t work on iPad

I’m using some JavaScript that will redirect the user to another URL after a fixed period of time. This is working well on all browsers but on an iPad 3 I have to test on it isn’t working. The timeout fires and I call

window.location = "www.someurl.com"; 

and I’ve also tried

  window.location.href = "www.someurl.com";

I can see the URL in the browser changing to www.someurl.ocom but the browser doesn’t actually go there – it stays on the same page.

Is there something iPad specific I have to do to make this work?

Thanks

Answer

try location.href = "...", should work on both
