Ionic Pro: Ionic Deploy whitescreen


I’m using the deploy pro feature but when I open my app, just after the splashscreen I get a white screen of death.

When building and runningbthe app from xcode, everything is fine if I disable the update feature.
If I let the update complete, I get the white screen.

Here are the logs from the iOS device :

Someone with an idea ?

Ionic Pro is a hosted and closed source service, so there is not much we, the community, can help you with, sorry. Check these:

You can - and should - contact support at

Same issue here. App loads fine. Then I quit. Then I reload it —> white screen. (in testflight)

Same for you:

What @Sujan12 said, or it’s a problem with customurlscheme plugin (if you have it) and / or your app not being configured correctly in Apple Developer Portal (associated domains not enabled on the app). The ‘handleopenurl’ comment in your error suggests something related to customurlscheme plugin (or perhaps deep links plugin)

Why does it work the first time? I dunno. Technology is a headache. But a similar problem was solved by enabling associated domains.

I’ve contacted the ionic pro support and it was an issue on their side.
There was an update recently and the problem has been solved!

So if you run into similar issue, juste check your plugins version and update them if necessary!

its happening with me today. May I know which plugin you updated to sort out this issue?

I also have the same problem with ionic pro code updates. Can you explicitely state how to fix that? I created my custom additional channel called Dev and installed plugin for the app build to keep track the Dev channel. Indeed, the commit is built and deployed to Dev. However, after the update is downloaded and unzipped i see white screen. No errors in console. Application just hangs on with white screen

What exactly I have to check? Everything is working when i build the app whith the installed plugins at ios and android

I’m stuck with the same

That caused by IonicDeploy mechanism.
