@ionic-native/file-transfer and Cordova iOS 6.1

In the ionic native docs it says you can use @ionic-native/file-transfer and cordova-plugin-file-transfer but these don’t work with Cordova-ios 6? Any one have any ideas on what to do? I would rather not re work the app to use something different and I read you can no longer use Cordova iOS 5 to upload to the App Store

UPDATE: forgot to add build info

Ionic CLI : 6.12.3
Ionic Framework : @ionic/angular 5.5.2

ios-sim : 8.0.2
NodeJS : v12.4.0

I guess you didn’t mention which framework you’re using. With Angular, you should be able to use HttpClient instead of needing any Cordova nonsense at all.

I updated the post but Im using the newest version of everything ( I believe ) Im upgrading an app from ionic 3 to 5 and the file transfer works fine using Cordova iOS 5 but since updating to Cordova iOS 6 it fails. Im just curious why and why its listed on ionics website as a supported native plugin when from what I’ve read the Cordova file transfer plugin is depreciated since 2017.

But thank you for the response. I will probably have to just rewrite and stop using the plugin
