Cordova-plugin-ionic adds 20MB to IPA


Moving an app to the pro backend, I have noticed that the file size for my IPA has blown out significantly. Old versions are 18MB, new are 42MB and all I have changed is adding the cordova-plugin-ionic plugin. In the IPA, there is a new folder called Frameworks that has a 21MB libswiftCore.dylib file!

Is the new plugin written in Swift? I spent a lot of time reducing the filesize of my app, this is not ideal at all.

But I wonder, do I need this entire 21MB Swift library just for one plugin? Any advice would be great.
