    See the screenshot, which explains it all:

    Touching the download button has the same effect as touching the 'Full Size Media' button, since downloading something this way is not possible on iOS. So, (stating the obvious) if something is not possible, this button should not be presented to the enduser when on iOS.

    This is sort of a Browser Issue / Not A Bug.

    It isn't really feasible for us to detect in advance each device and know how that device (or browser, or OS, or extensions to that browser/OS) is going to behave.

    It just so happens that iOS chooses to ignore the headers we send (that would cause most platforms to download rather than display the image) hence there is little we can do that is "correct".
