UI automation on xCode cannot find text fields on Ionic 2 iOS build



My team and I are creating an iOS application. I have been trying to create some automation using the UI automation within xcode but all text fields show up as null. When clicking on them from the UI record function you get an error saying “Timestamped Event Matching Error: Failed to find matching element” basically it cannot be found. When searching with the accessibility inspector the text field show up as null. Text fields have a label and can be found and triggered on ionic 1, the issue seems to be with ionic 2.

Any help would be appreciated.
