Ionic native status bar not working in Ionic Pro

I have an Ionic 3 app that implements ionic native status bar. When I run ionic emulate, or build the app with ionic cordova build ios, I can simulate the app and it behaves as expected. However, when I push the code to ionic master, the production version of the app does not function as expected.

I am only looking to hide the status bar. The code should be correct, again, as it works just fine if I build it locally.
