Approve transaction using app no longer possible?

The previous UI for OTP was very straightforward, and iOS auto fill-in from SMS verification works seamlessly with it approval page.

But the recent changes (may be SCA related) has made the process more complicated / troublesome. iOS no longer able to auto-fill the verification code from SMS.

Additionally, I noticed that there is no longer an option to approve the transaction via the app notification instead of SMS. I sometimes travel overseas and will not have UK SIM in my phone, which make receiving verification SMS as real chore.

Am I missing something or the app approval is gone?

If you see the chat below we’ve mentioned this previously as well.
