MC ClickOnText doesn't work for iOS

I have tried the command Device("Device").ClickOnText "myText" for some apps, but unfortunately it seems to work just for Android, instead in iOS the text is just selected and not clicked (e.g.: for button "Continue" in iOS is selected the text, instead in Android it performs a click and goes to next page).

How to fix it?

Thank you.

Please note that ClickOnText depends on UFT's OCR mechanism. 

If the text is selected, this means that OCR mechanism recognize it, however there is no listener for press on the text (means, it is not implemented on iOS by app developer). 

Instead of ClickOnText, you can use Object.Click functinatliy and eliminate a need in OCR.
