This appears related to closed 4 years ago.

In iOS 9 (latest) on an iPhone 6+ in Safari (latest) the theme previewer within the theme installer doesn't allow touch scrolling within the iframe.

This bug persists in Xcode Simulator and on iPad 2 and iPhone 6s running latest iOS and Safari.

This issue does not appear in the installed theme previewer, as far as I can tell.

Within theme-install.php, on line 279, when I apply styles -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch;overflow-y: scroll; to .wp-full-overlay-main it resolves the issue.

This seems to be an issue in both the theme install preview in core and the preview in the theme directory.

@anthonydpaul's patch works advertised, I just wonder if the overflow-y: scroll; rule will display scrollbars by default on non-Macs. Can someone with a Linux or Windows test that patch and see?

This might just be a compromise we'll have to accept to make it accessible to iOS devices.
