Ion-header overlaps with status bar on ios

Hello everyone!
I am having trouble with ion-header. After changing it’s color to dark it overlaps with status bar on iOS.

To show the problem I have created new blank application and set color of header to dark.

<ion-navbar color="dark">

And this is what I got

As well I am not sure that StatusBar plugin is properly working. Code below does not change anything in the app.


Cordova CLI : 7.0.1
Ionic CLI : 3.1.2
cordova-plugin-statusbar: 2.2.2

Is there a solution to this?

Exact same issue here.

Cordova CLI : 7.0.1
Ionic: 3.7.0

same issue
Cordova CLI : 7.0.1
Ionic: 3.7.0
"cordova-plugin-statusbar": “^2.2.3”,

This worked for me
Install statusbar plugin from cordova:
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-statusbar

Add this line in the config.xml file:
<preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="true" />

Don’t forget to rebuild ios:
ionic cordova build ios

Should work in simulator and iPhone
