Can't i disable dates before TODAY?

How to disable dates before today and set default date as today ???

For default date u can bind value in .ts to datetime ngModel.
Remember ionic ISO 8601 datetime format for its value


    <ion-label>Start Time</ion-label>
    <ion-datetime displayFormat="YYYY-MMM-DD" [(ngModel)]="today"></ion-datetime>


today = new Date().toISOString();

In addition to what @mobgg has explained, you can do the following:

In your component:

minDate: string = new Date().toISOString();
selectedDate: string = new Date().toISOString();

… and in the template:

<ion-datetime displayFormat="MM/DD/YYYY" [(ngModel)]="selectedDate" [min]="minDate"</ion-datetime>

Check out the Min and Max in the API docs:
