Live Deploy not updating content


Hi Everyone,

I have an ipa of my most recent package installed on my iPhone. I also have my master channel within Ionic Pro set to automatically deploy.

<plugin name="cordova-plugin-ionic" spec="^2.0.4">
        <variable name="APP_ID" value="hidden-for-privacy" />
        <variable name="CHANNEL_NAME" value="Master" />
        <variable name="UPDATE_METHOD" value="background" />

After doing the following
-Save All
-git add .
-git commit -m ‘new v 0.0.1’
-git push
-git push ionic master

I wait for the master channel to automatically deploy to my new commit , close my app on my phone and load the ‘new’ version. However, none of my changes are shown.

Any ideas?

Live update not working on clean app

same issue for me on iOS …

I also tested my code on an Android device and it works.


Wild guess: master instead of Master?


Nope, it’s correct.
We have to specify the name of the channel not branch.


Same issue here, just stopped working out of nowhere yesterday -using iOS not sure about Android


Posted this elsewhere but:

So a temporary fix:

Downgrade cordova-plugin-ionic to 4.0.1 and cordova-plugin-ionic-webview to 1.1.16. This at least allows me to keep the deploy snapshot. Still having trouble with WKWebView if I dont kill and restart after an update though.

It appears that something weird is happening with the way they are grabbing upstream uuid:


Super answer! It works on iOS now.

Many thanks for the answer!
