Cordova Contacts - not working in iOS Simulator


Hi all,

i got some problems with Cordova Contacts.

I just want to get access to address book. But when i do

Ionic Run IOS

and click on the button to load contacts, nothing happens. I also didn’t ask me that the App tries to get access to address book.
Anyone an idea, why it isn’t working? Code is locking right.


Hi Driesel! I had the same issue. It has to do with the required privacy description in iOS 10. You’ll need to add the NSContactsUsageDescription to your .plist. I hope this helps you!
