Whisper API not transcribing audio files coming from an iphone

Hi, I am recording audio on the browser using MediaRecorder and sending the file to openai whisper api for transcription and for some reason it would only pick up one word and other times just a bunch of random characters, when I am using an iPhone but works well on Android and on my computer

I am having the exact same issue: it works on chrome/safari on web, on android it works, but using ios I just get strange results, a simple audio file using ‘test test test’ will result in a jumble of chinese characters.

I too am facing this exact issue on iphone. I was also able to reproduce this on safari on macbook. Since on iphone, safari and chrome are essentially running on the same engine, I think this is a Safari related issue.
Were you able to find any workarounds/ solutions?
