Issue with cordova-plugin-statusbar plugin and v1 project

I am having some difficulties getting the statusbar plugin to style correctly in my V1 project. The statusbar continually turns to a grey background with white text no matter which approach I take.

This my current Ionic setup:

cli packages: (/usr/local/lib/node_modules)

    @ionic/cli-utils  : 1.19.1
    ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.19.1

global packages:

    cordova (Cordova CLI) : 6.5.0 

local packages:

    Cordova Platforms : ios 4.3.1
    Ionic Framework   : ionic1 1.3.2


    ios-deploy : 1.9.0 
    ios-sim    : 5.0.8 
    Node       : v9.4.0
    npm        : 5.6.0 
    OS         : macOS High Sierra
    Xcode      : Xcode 9.2 Build version 9C40b 

Environment Variables:

    ANDROID_HOME : not set


    backend : pro

These are the plugins for my project:

cordova-plugin-console 1.1.0 "Console"
cordova-plugin-device 2.0.1 "Device"
cordova-plugin-inappbrowser 2.0.2 "InAppBrowser"
cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard 2.0.5 "cordova-plugin-ionic-keyboard"
cordova-plugin-splashscreen 5.0.2 "Splashscreen"
cordova-plugin-statusbar 2.4.1 "StatusBar"
cordova-plugin-whitelist 1.3.3 "Whitelist"
onesignal-cordova-plugin 2.2.5 "OneSignal Push Notifications"

I have attempted to edit the config.xml file for the project to include these preferences and parameters:

<preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="true" />
<preference name="StatusBarBackgroundColor" value="#166a34" />
<preference name="StatusBarStyle" value="lightcontent" />
<feature name="StatusBar">
     <param name="ios-package" onload="true" value="CDVStatusBar" />

Along with this code in my app.js:

.run(function($ionicPlatform, $cordovaStatusbar) {
  $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {

Any thoughts on why my status bar keeps reverting to a non-stylized version with all of these preferences and code for the app?

Thanks in advance.

Good news! I figured out what the issue was. It looks like you need cordova-plugin-ionic-webview in order for the status bar plugin to work.

Bad news is that now I am having a bunch of CORS issues with the updated webview plugin.
