Enable pinch zoom on google map for mobile device

How do i enable pinch zoom on iOS device. Everything works fine, i just need for users to be able to pinch zoom on the map only:

heres what i have:


<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0, , user-scalable=yes">

<div id="map-canvas"></div>`


#map-canvas {
  margin: 1em auto;
  width: 90%;
  height: 9em;


//Google Map API
function initialize() {
    var mapCanvas = document.getElementById('map-canvas');
    var map = new google.maps.Map(mapCanvas);

    var isDraggable = $(document).width() > 480 ? true : false; // If document (your website) is wider than 480px, isDraggable = true, else isDraggable = false
    var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(26.754051, -80.920592);

    var mapOptions = {
      center: myLatlng,
      zoom: 12,
      mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
      draggable: isDraggable,
      scrollwheel: false, // Prevent users to start zooming the map when scrolling down the page
        //... options options options
      panControl: true,
      scaleControl: true 
    var map = new google.maps.Map(mapCanvas, mapOptions);

    var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
      position: myLatlng,
      map: map,
      title: 'Hello World!'
google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);`
