There’s no mention of font color. And the light style doesn’t make the font white.

Do you have the status bar plugin installed?

Yes. It came as part of the Ionic sidemenu starter project.

Ahh I think I read you question too quickly.
There is is not way to change the font-color of the status-bar, just the background. The font color adjusts to either white or black depending on the bar color.

Ok, so this assumes that you have the ng-cordova plugin for the status-bar.
If not, you can do this

.run(function($ionicPlatform) {
  $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
    if(window.StatusBar) {
