This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


The -webkit-touch-callout CSS property controls the display of the default callout shown when you touch and hold a touch target.

When a target is touched and held on iPhone OS, Safari displays a callout information about the link. This property allows disabling that behavior.


/* Keyword values */
-webkit-touch-callout: default;
-webkit-touch-callout: none;

/* Global values */
-webkit-touch-callout: initial;
-webkit-touch-callout: inherit;
-webkit-touch-callout: unset;


The default callout is displayed.
The callout is disabled.
