After migrate to capacitor still getting Apple warning related UIWebView

Hi there,
I have a code base, initially created with cordova. After Apple warning I moved to capacitor and tried to upload to app store but I am still getting this warning message:

Deprecated API Usage - Apple will no longer accept submissions of new apps that use UIWebView as of April 30, 2020 and app updates that use UIWebView as of December 2020. Instead, use WKWebView for improved security and reliability

while I removed cordova references from my codes. let me share the configuration


   Ionic CLI          : 5.4.2 (C:\Users\Pc\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\ionic)
   Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.9.2
   @ionic/app-scripts : 3.2.2


   Capacitor CLI   : 2.0.1
   @capacitor/core : 2.0.1


   Cordova CLI       : not installed
   Cordova Platforms : not available
   Cordova Plugins   : cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard 2.1.3, cordova-plugin-ionic-webview 4.1.0, (and 14 other plugins)


   cordova-res : not installed
   native-run  : 0.2.8 (update available: 1.0.0)


   NodeJS : v12.16.2 (C:\Program Files\nodejs\node.exe)
   npm    : 6.12.0

Here is the plugin list I am using from package.json :
"cordova": {
    "plugins": {
      "cordova-plugin-whitelist": {},
      "cordova-plugin-statusbar": {},
      "cordova-plugin-device": {},
      "cordova-plugin-splashscreen": {},
      "cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard": {},
      "cordova-plugin-document-viewer": {},
      "cordova-plugin-advanced-http": {},
      "cordova-sqlite-storage": {},
      "cordova-plugin-camera": {},
      "cordova-plugin-file-transfer": {},
      "cordova-plugin-file": {},
      "com.telerik.plugins.nativepagetransitions": {},
      "cordova-plugin-globalization": {},
      "com-badrit-base64": {},
      "cordova-plugin-compat": {},
      "cordova-plugin-uniquedeviceid": {},
      "mx.ferreyra.callnumber": {},
      "cordova-plugin-ionic-webview": {
      "cordova-plugin-zip": {},
      "cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter": {}

I am not able to remove UIWebView, although I already read
and this

but still nothing worked for me. Please help:

Cordova is not the Problem. They have a Workaround for this too. But one of your Plugins causes the Problem. Open your Project in xCode and search for UiWebView: What did you find?

If you’re getting this warning, it means one of the plugins is using UIWebView. Unfortunately it’s challenging to determine which one. The best bet is to remove plugins until you find the one with the issue. Standard plugins (camera, device, etc.) are probably OK - check the 3rd party ones.

okay…i will try what u have suggested. thanks for quick response.

I can see 56 results in 8 files…all are from pods.xcodeproj or app.xcodeproj… what else?

For sure, this plugin use UIWebView.

In my case that is File Transfer Plugin…
