Playing sounds doesn't work on iPhone (HTML5)

Just as the title says, sounds just don't work on iPhone :( There are no errors in the console. I have tried both my personal project and PiratePig sample.

Okay, I have found a solution :D In order to enable sounds on iOS you have to play any sound once on begin touch event (or mouse down) and then all other sounds will work just fine :)

Which version of iOS is this, and does this work with a standard mouse event and, or do you need to do anything else that is special? :) Thanks!

iOS 7.1, standard mouse event + does the job. I found some more information on this and it seems to be a common issue on iDevices:
