[Ionic 4] Open New Window in iOS Safari

I am trying to open a new window on a button click with the below code, but the button event is not triggered on iOS Safari. I can’t use inAppBrowser for this because it needs to work as a web app.

buttonClick() {
const newWindow = window.open(this.website.url, '_system');
newWindow.focus();
}

I appreciate any feedback

I ended up using the following code, which works in the case i needed to open an external page within the same browser tab. Still not a solution for the problem i originally stated, but works in my case.

window.location.assign(this.url);
