Cordova-plugin-file-transfer alternative for ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage error

Recently I was getting the error ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage while uploading my app on TestFlight. After upgrading/removing a few plugins and upgrading cordova-ios to 6.2.0, the deployment worked.

One of the plugins removed was cordova-plugin-file-transfer. Without this plugin majority of my app is not working. So what is the alternative for this plugin in cordova as I cannot migrate to the capacitor.

have you updated your app to Ionic 5? i’m pretty sure the latest version (with ionic 5) will work fine without giving you the warning

The recommended alternative is an XHR. If you’re using Angular, just use its HttpClient to download files.
