Quick Question about setting Splash Screen Delay time


I followed the instructions for ‘Automating Icons and Splash Screens’ and everything worked fine. The only thing I am wondering is how to change the delay before it closes (for iOS).

Adjusting the value for the splash screen delay isn’t helping:

< preference name=“SplashScreenDelay” value=“3000”/>


I am having the same problem. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

I also tried doing it manually and disabling the auto hide splashscreen, but it will always autohide.

Any help?


If you test often you’ll notice that it works once in awhile, but is inconsistent.


I tried following in my environment, it works :grinning:

  1. config.xml, add:
    preference name=“AutoHideSplashScreen” value=“false”

  2. index.html, add:
    document.addEventListener(“deviceready”, onDeviceReady, false);
    function onDeviceReady() {
    setTimeout(function() {
    }, 2000);
