Ionic + Parse Push Notifications Status Bar Too High


I have recently connected Parse Push to my Ionic app. However, I am now getting an extra grey header bar on every app page when I test on my iPhone. I can’t seem to find out how that bar was added to my app and I don’t know if the problem is with Parse, Xcode, or Ionic (or a combination of all three). Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Here’s a picture of what I’m trying to explain.

Thanks in advance.

I have noticed the grey bar is the same height as my banner notifications. I am wondering if this is a placeholder for the notifications rather than a header/navigation bar.

I am excluding Parse as a possible problem since I was able to set up Push on my Samsung tablet with no issues. So it’s either Xcode or Ionic giving me headaches.
