Angular 6 + Ionic 3

Is it possible to use Ionic 3 with angular 6?

Which part of Angular 6 do you want to use? The CLI, Service Workers, …?

Version 6 of Angular Now Available

The 6.0.0 release of Angular is here! This is a major release focused less on the underlying framework, and more on the toolchain and on making it easier to move quickly with Angular in the future.

Actually I want to build an app using angular 6 instead of 5.2 that comes with the current version of ionic.

Yes!. But I have some projects running with Ionic 3 and Im not sure if it will be possible to upgrade them to ionic 4.

I think that you will run into a few peer dependencies issues.

Have a look here:
A6 and I3.9.2
and here:

Very alpha, but running. Thx.

There are almost no breaking changes from Angular 5 to 6, so my guess is the biggest problem might be Typescript. The Ionic code base is always several TS versions behind. But maybe this is less important now because the components have been refactored into Stencil.

Bottom line: I’d be cautious about it. Unless Angular 6 is giving you A LOT (and I doubt it is, just not that different), stickking with 5 is safer. I plan to wait for official word.

As far as I can see --aot fails after upgrading to a TypeScript version after 2.6.2
You could of course ignore the --prod version
