Unable to change date on DatePicker (Used to work)

I have a very simple page with a datepicker, works great on simulator and most iPad.
However, I have a user who recently reported that he is unable to change the date on one of his iPad (currently trying to figure exactly what model/version he has).

Instead of seeing the option to select the year / month / day, he just sees the current date

He sent me the following screen capture:

Any clue what might be causing it?

    Is it a default DatePicker control?
    It's better to stably reproduce this on your side and post the related code here.
    And then we could give some further suggestions.

    It is the default DatePicker;
    Seems the problem started to happen after he updated to iOS 14.1
    I was able to reproduce it on the iPad Pro (9.7-inch) iOS 14.1 simulator (but seems to be working fine on older versions)

    Tried creating a new app from scratch (Multiplatform> Blank Forms App) and simply added a <DatePicker /> to the main page, and I could observe the problem

    At a guess it looks like an issue with the colour of the non selected items, I presume they are still there and the spinners still work?

    Turns out I had to do a custom renderer to change the PreferredDatePickerStyle
    For anyone trying to get more info or see the renderer found the info here:
