Missing Plugin: Splashscreen

Recently (maybe after moving to v6), the splash screen plugin no longer loads. Using cordova-plugin-splashscreen. I doesn’t show up in the list of plugin files in X-Code and X-Code throws an error that it isn’t found.

So far, I’ve tried:

  • remove plugin
  • add plugin

As well as

  • remove ios
  • add ios

All other plugins are present.

To anyone who has the same issue. I was able to resolve it. The problem is that with v6 of Ionic, the iOS splashscreen plugin is deprecated. This means that you must NOT attempt to access with iOS apps. You must check the platform (if === ‘ios’) and skip the splashscreen code.
