WHHATTT!!! iOS 12.2. beta comes with some big PWA updates!

1) External sites are loaded via SFViewController! So authentication flows and still work without leaving the PWA.

2) State is maintained if it goes in the background. A bit buggy though, but promising

3) A hell of a lot more experimental features! Web Auth, Web Animations, WebMetal(?), pointer events, intersection observer...

And service workers see to be removed from the experiments list. Enabled by default!

4) hidden feature, pwa is in the “application” section in search! Native on the left, pwa on the right.
