Camera Image not displaying in iOS

Hi, I’ve been using the camera and the Image picker plugin and displaying the images in FILE_URI format for a couple of months now, but since our last update (31 July) the images don’t display on iOS. I tried everything I could think of like display in Base64, using the Dom sanitizer, using ion-img instead of img…

Does anyone have a solution for this problem ?

Here is a snippet of my code:

 <ion-slides #imgSlider class="imgSlider" slidesPerView="auto">
     <ion-slide *ngFor="let image of images, let i = index">
         <div class="cameraImg" [style.height.px]="cameraImageHeight">
              <img class="spotImg" [src]="image.url" />
        correctOrientation: true,
        allowEdit: true
    }).then((imageData: any) => {
        var d = new Date();
        var n = d.getTime();
          id: n,
          url: imageData,
          newImage: true,
          thumbnail: (this.images.length == 0)? true : false 
    }, (err) => {

Just noticed this as well, did you resolve it? I just started looking around, taken video still displays.

Yes I solved the problem, removing the wkwebview plugin solved the issue !


Dang. Needed that for a sticky header list, but now that you mention it this did happen around the same time I installed. Ok, thanks for the update.

Thank you! That solved the issue for me after a couple of hours of hair pulling :smile:

For those who have to work with wkwebview, a workaround is available at

Had the same issue and thanks to tchinou1 I was able to solve it but in my case I did the following:

ionic cordova plugin remove cordova-plugin-ionic-webview
ionic cordova platform ios remove
ionic cordova platform ios add
