Black screen displayed after splash in iOS Cordova app

Hello :slight_smile:

I built an Angular application for Android and iOS, with ionic. It is a Cordova application.

Android: everything is fine, the application works perfectly.

For the iOS part, I have only one bug: Once the splashscreen loaded, the application displays an empty black screen. If you rotate it from portrait mode to landscape mode, this is only where the application is displayed correctly.

I added the status bar and the splashscreen plugins to config.xml. I put full screen to Yes as you can see below:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<widget id="" version="1.0.0" xmlns="" xmlns:cdv="">

I use xCode in parallel to simulate my application on iOS. Here below an overview of my configuration in info.plist :

my appDelegate.m :

#import "AppDelegate.h"
#import "MainViewController.h"

@implementation AppDelegate

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication*)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: 
self.viewController = [[MainViewController alloc] init];
return [super application:application 


I looked at the other questions where people had a similar problem, and none of them had exactly the same problem, or an answer that I could use.

If anyone would have a solution to offer or a tip please. It will be almost a week since I am stuck on this problem.

Thank you :slight_smile:
