    Have you tried this approach on the webpage side:
    It could manually set the offset of the scroll view to (0, 0).

    Hi LandLu,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    In my situation I don't have the control of the webpage. I'm only loading the url in UIWebView. Is their any way we can control it from UIWebview delegate in Xamarin ios

    Maybe there's some logic code on the webpage to move the webview.
    We could change its offset by registering the notification of keyboard:

    NSNotificationCenter.DefaultCenter.AddObserver(UIKeyboard.WillShowNotification, async (notification) =>
        await Task.Delay(100);
        webView.ScrollView.ContentInset = new UIEdgeInsets(0, 0, 0, 0);
        webView.ScrollView.ContentOffset = new CGPoint(0, 0);

    Moreover, UIWebView now has been deprecated by Apple it's better to move to WKWebView.
