We are happy to announce the minor version of Cordova iOS 4.3.0 has been released!

  1. CocoaPods support in <framework> tags of plugins (static libraries only)
  2. the --buildFlag option to send extra xcodebuild flags when building/running your app
  3. Both Xcode 7 and Xcode 8 support (automatic code signing). Xcode 6 support has been dropped.
  4. Support for the four new App Transport Security (ATS) keys introduced in iOS 10
