Hi Lou,
Apple does not use the fullscreen API so the fullscreen button will not work in iOS devices.
What you can do is add another action to the fullscreen button with an action filter.

Mouse Click, Go To URL, URL: index.html, Target: _blank

The Target _blank means it will open a new window with the tour. So you would close this window/tab to return back to the webpage.
Then have an action filter that says: do this is if OS = iOS

So on a computer and Android devices you cat the fullscreen but on iOS it will open a new window.
You can also add an action filter the the fullscreen action to say if OS ≠ iOS, so that would be if it is NOT iOS. use fullscreen. So if it is iOS the fullscreen action is not used.

The fullscreen would work if there would be a way to change z-index of the viewport container:
it works fine on my iphone/ipad but you see the top menu (see attached image).
A wired thing is that on my ipad the gyroscope and cardboard view works fine but not on an iphone....mhh FIY

it would be great if there would be an option to have different layouts depending on viewport without complicated scripting.

Also the menu buttons jump when using SVG but not if you convert them to PNG.
