Apache Cordova iOS 3.9.2
By: Vladimir Kotikov
02 Nov 2015

We are happy to announce that Cordova iOS 3.9.2 has been released and will be the default iOS version.

This release addresses multiple iOS 9/9.1 and XCode 7/7.1 issues. It also deprecates a number of APIs, which will be removed in Cordova iOS 4.0.0. For a full list of API changes see API changes in

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform update ios@3.9.2

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add ios@3.9.2 --save

For non-CLI projects or for pre-3.0 projects, refer to the upgrade guides.

Warning: Some people are seeing the following error when adding the new platform:

CordovaError: Failed to fetch platform ios@~3.9.1
Probably this is either a connection problem, or platform spec is incorrect.
Check your connection and platform name/version/URL.
Error: version not found: cordova-ios@3.9.2

If you see this, you will need to clear your cache. Run the following command to do so.

rm -rf ~/.cordova
