Uppercase Greek letters are getting accents on iPhone mobile devices

On my client's under development e-shop made with WP & WooCommerce, all of the uppercase letters appeared at various purchase steps via "text-transform: uppercase;" are getting accents. The shop is in Greek language and uppercase letters shouldn't have accents because this is wrong in Greek grammar.

Is there maybe a way to fix this?

The issue appears only at iPhone mobile devices and not at the rest.

Please check my screenshots below to better understand the issue:

I would like to inform you that I have found a relevant plugin on which seems to fix the issue with the uppercase accents on Greek letters:

In addition, I have found a conversation on regarding the issue:

I would prefer to avoid adding an extra plugin for fixing the issue. WooCommerce official support also recommended me to report the issue here as the fix should be implemented in WordPress core itself (as it affects WordPress users as well).

The problem here seems to be related with the text-transform: uppercase; CSS code. As you may read above, this is a limitation with CSS code that does not remove the accents when switched to uppercase on Greek Language (I am not sure if it happens to other languages as well).

Waiting for your further advice on this.

Kind Regards,
