Should I wait for platform.ready before calling native?

Ionic native 3 docs(https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/status-bar/) doesn’t show requirement to wait for platform.ready() before calling native plugins. Is it required or not?

constructor(public platform: Platform, public statusBar: StatusBar) {
    platform.ready().then(() => {   // should i wait for this
      statusBar.styleDefault();
    });
  }

most probably yes… I would wait just to make sure.
