        I'm running into an issue I don't quite understand. I'm using an `MKMapView` with a `UILongPressGestureRecognizer`. The problem is that every first touch after a long press seems to be missed or ignored.


        I've created a tiny little demo view controller in which it's reproducible (I've inlined the code in the post down below):




        After the long press target is executed. It first takes a touch on the map view for it to start recognizing gestures again (not just long presses, also all standard map interactions like pan, tilt, zoom, etc.).


        If I run this exact same code with a different kind of view (a standard `UIView` instead of the `MKMapView` for example), there's no problem.


        Does anyone have a clue what's going on here?


        (inline code sample in case that's easier)


        import MapKit
        import UIKit
        class MainController: UIViewController {
            private let label = UILabel()
            private var count = 0
            override func viewDidLoad() {
                view.backgroundColor = .white
                let mapView = MKMapView()
                mapView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
                label.textAlignment = .center
                label.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
                    mapView.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.topAnchor),
                    mapView.leftAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.leftAnchor),
                    mapView.rightAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.rightAnchor),
                    mapView.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: label.topAnchor),
                    label.leftAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.leftAnchor),
                    label.rightAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.rightAnchor),
                    label.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view!.bottomAnchor),
                    label.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 50),
                let gestureRecognizer = UILongPressGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: #selector(handleMapPress(sender:)))
                gestureRecognizer.minimumPressDuration = 0.3
            private func handleMapPress(sender: UIGestureRecognizer) {
                guard sender.state == .ended else {
                count += 1
                label.text = "Presses: \(count)"

          Don't know if you ever found a solution to this. I was facing the same issue and the only way round it that I could find was to manipulate the map in some way... for example, in my case, I was using a UILongPressGestureRecognizer to add an annotation so I centered the map on the new annotation coordinate:


          @objc private func handleLongPressGesture(_ gesture: UILongPressGestureRecognizer) {

                 if gesture.state == .began {

                      let touch: CGPoint = gesture.location(in: self.map)

                      let coordinate: CLLocationCoordinate2D = self.map.convert(touch, toCoordinateFrom: self.map)


                      self.map.setCenter(coordinate, animated: true)




          But centering the map on it's current center coordinate also works:


          self.map.setCenter(self.map.centerCoordinate, animated: false)
