Native Page Transitions and WkWebView


I have recently migrated my app from Ionic 3 to Ionic 5 (and did upgrade my plugins in the process).
However, I submitted my app to the AppStore this month, I got the following message:

ITMS-90809: Deprecated API Usage - Apple will no longer accept submissions of new apps that use UIWebView as of April 30, 2020 and app updates that use UIWebView as of December 2020. Instead, use WKWebView for improved security and reliability. Learn more (

I did verify, I am using cordova-ios 5.1.1 and at runtime, I can confirm I am using the WkWebView
I did have a look at my codebase to find any mention of UIWebView, and I find some in (and in the telenik pluggin).

Should I try to get rid of this plugin ? or it shouldn’t matter going forward ?


Did you find a solution for this issue? I am having the same problem but not sure if issue is with Page Transitions.
