ScrollViewProxy.scrollTo seems to be broken on iOS 16

Forums > SwiftUI


This simple app should scroll to the last line of a list after appending a new item. The code works fine with iOS 15 but cause a runtime error on iOS 16.

import SwiftUI

struct ScrollListView: View {
    @State private var data: [String] = []

    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Button(action: {
                data.append("ScrollItem #\(data.count+1)")
            }) {
                Label("Add Row", systemImage: "plus")

            ScrollViewReader { proxy in
                List(0..<data.count, id: \.self) { index in
                .navigationTitle("ScrollList Test")
                .onChange(of: data.count) { _ in
        .onAppear() {
            for _ in 0..<30 {
                data.append("ScrollItem #\(data.count+1)")

The error occures on line: proxy.scrollTo(data.count-1):

0x0000000100fb8050 in closure #2 in closure #3 in closure #1 in ScrollListView.body.getter at /…/TestApp/Features/Scrollview/ScrollTestView.swift:29

Does anyone have an idea or a workaround for iOS 16?
