Fabiano, what changes need to be made to the selection input to make this work?  If they are complicated we should have a discussion about whether we need to support this or not.  Uploading certs on an iphone is useful in the event that your cert expires and you get mailed a new one, but if it requires a lot of work to implement we will not support it.

I don't think this can be fixed. 

By architecture iOS does not expose a file system to the user so it wouldn't be possible to upload files in a web interface. Most apps do file upload/integration by syncing via iTunes, Dropbox or something similar. 

Safari on iOS 6 started supporting photo upload, which is now the default behavior for input type="file":

Will add a Knowledge Base entry for this.
