Ionic app renders "select" dropdown and alert() in old way

Update: Issue resolved

Resolved the issue by changing the android theme to android:theme="@android:style/Theme.DeviceDefault" in the Platforms > Android > AndroidManifest.xml file

Deployed my application to android, and noticed that it renders components like select and alert using the old android style. Any ideas what may be causing this issue? See screenshot below.

What i’ve tried

  • Updated cordova-cli
  • Updated cordova-android
  • Changed minSdkVersion to 19 in config.xml
