Hi, I’m having this problem on iOS 11 as well. Thanks for clearly laying out the steps. Just to clarify, I:
- Removed the cordova status bar plugin with
$ sudo ionic cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-status-bar
- Added the latest version of the cordova status bar plugin with
$ sudo ionic cordova plugin add https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-statusbar.git
- Already had the cordova-plugin-ionic-webview plugin installed
- Already had the meta viewport tag set to viewport-fit-cover:
<meta name="viewport" content="viewport-fit=cover, width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no">
If I understand correctly, the only thing that I effectively did was update to the latest version of the cordova-plugin-status-bar. I haven’t done any testing, but I also don’t have a way to test the app in iOS 11 (this problem only showed up after I submitted to the app store.) Could this just be a recent update for iOS 11 or is it possible that my problem is something else?
I’ll update on my progress with respect to this issue as things progress.
