IOS Date input is top aligned, but android is vertically centered (PICTURE PROVIDED)

As the title states. the same date input is vertically aligned at the top on iPhone. but is centered on android.

Ionic v1.3.1


I fixed this by adding the below CSS style:

style="line-height: 34px;"

I am not sure why, but it seemed as though the padding-top: 8px style was not being applied on iOS.
