The fine folks at GOV.UK:
Until now, the GOV.UK Design System date input component used the HTML element
<input type="number" />to provide a number keypad when a user enters dates.
However, we recently moved away from
<input type="number"> to <input type="text" inputmode="numeric" pattern="[0-9]*">
Sounds familiar? That’s because the same recommendation was done in the HTML attributes to improve your users’ two factor authentication experience post 🙂
