playsinline not being respected on iOS

iOS JavaScript SDK version 8.7

No extensions

Tested on iOS 12 and 13

Not sure sample app has this specifically in it

Haven't upgraded to 8.9 as it's not playing our HTML video element at all and constantly sending the error message "[Process] kill() returned unexpected error 1"

We have an HTML video element included in our index.html file which has a source that is dynamically loaded based on various triggers in our ARWorld. Even when including the playsinline attribute on the video tag and including configuration.webViewAllowsInlineMediaPlayback = YES in the WTArchitectStartupConfiguration, the inline playback is not respected on iPhone.

Since according to the migration notes for 8.9, UIWebView has been replaced with WKWebView and the webViewAllowsInlineMediaPlayback property has been removed, I suppose the previous configuration is moot anyways. What are your remmondations for getting inline playback with the latest version of the SDK (so we can implement once that error is squashed and we are able to upgrade).
